Question by nvr: How do you access a domain you have registered for but have no active hosting?
I recently signed up for a web host package from ipage. My directories were wiped clean so I dropped the hosting package but kept the rights to my domain. Does anyone know how I would go about accessing that domain once I set up web hosting? There are no files on the site, but I do own the rights to it. I want to set up my own hosting from my computer to test if it works. Any advice or resources provided would be greatly appreciated.

You go thru the registrar to make changes to the domain name.

If you don’t know who the registrar is – you should have gotten an email, then check http://betterwhois.com and this info will be somewhere on the lookup for your domain.
