viewing website before site live

Hi,

 

I have created a WHM/Cpanel account for a domain that will keep its name server elsewhere. I want to test the website before changing DNS and A record but how do I do this? I read somewhere on this site about http://XX.XX.XX.XX/~domain.com but this doesn't seem to work and I can't now find the article 

Can anyone help? Thanks in advance!

@antonyw1969,

I would never use a third party site to view a site before launch. Not ever! Use MAMP or XAMMP, free download from official MAMP site.

But then again, some folk just won't listen Smiley Happy.......................
