Hello mihai.

Thanks for posting your question regarding how to access your WordPress website on InMotion Hosting's servers while your domain is hosted elsewhere. As long as your hosting subscription is still active with InMotion Hosting, you can modify your hosts file on your computer to accomplish this. This will allow you to use your domain to access the WordPress installation on InMotion's server, while not disrupting your website hosted elsewhere.

I hope this helps!

Sincerely,

Carlos D.

Hello,

Thank you for your reply, but where can I find the IP that I should put in the hosts file? I tried the shared IP adress found in my cpanel, but that takes me to what looks like the servers main page, not my WP main page. 

Hello.

The IP address you would use is indeed the shared IP address. If you need further assistance with your account, I recommend that you contact our Live Technical Support.

Best Regards,

Carlos D.
