Hello alanrabello,

Thank you for you question on using FTP before you point your domain to our Nameservers. You can do this by using the server IP or server name as the host name (instead of your domain name) in your FTP program. You can find the server IP and server name under the stats list on the left side of your cPanel home screen. For more information on viewing your account information in cPanel, please see our article How do I find what server I am on.

Once you're ready to point your domain to our Nameservers, please see our article on changing your domain's Namesservers for more information.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
