Can I upload my files before the DNS of my domain resolves?

Yes, if you use FTP or the cPanel File Manager function to upload your files, you can upload to your files to your ip/~yourusername/ before the DNS resolves. You can also view your uploaded web pages online by http://yourActualAssignedIP/~yourusername/ before the DNS resolves (the trailing slash is NECESSARY when accessing your web site by IP).

Keep in mind that some functions and file types may not be fully operational until the DNS has resolved. Examples include PHP pages and scripts utilizing MySQL..
