Hi Lord help me,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you today. You can use your temp url in your settings in Dreamweaver in the place of your domain name. Here's an article explaining how to configure your settings in DreamWeaver.

Please keep in mind, instead of using your domain name for the server name, you'll want to use your temp url. When using the tmep URL in your settings, do not include the username at the end. It will resemble something like this:

If you are unsure of your temp url, you can find it inside AMP. Here's an article explaining more about using the temporary URL.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
