We have been getting many emails saying what’s the best way to preview their website before changing the main sites DNS / A:Records over… Well we have found a simple but easy way to preview websites, its as simple as creating a sub domain. Just like a full domain name a sub domain can be pointed to our Railo servers in the US and we can then add it to the service. (Example below)

What we see:

<Host name=”#domain.com#” appBase=”webapps”
unpackWARs=”true” autoDeploy=”true”
xmlValidation=”false” xmlNamespaceAware=”false”>
<Context path=”” docBase=”/home/#username#/#domain.com#/” />

Grey: Standard host text we add when we get a new order
Black: What we add for your sub domain to work on the main domain

So in conclusion with your current domain owner or hosting provider you will need to create a sub domain name, anything you would like (Example: railo.yourdomain.com) and point it to own Railo IP which is in your ‘Welcome Account Information’.

If you have any questions or would like to get more information please contact our support team via the support ticket.
