You can add the yourusername.webfactional.com subdomain we provided with the creation of your account to your website entry and browse your application using that, or override your workstation's hosts file and point your domain to our servers. A trivial search will help you find instructions for your operating system.

Thanks for your answer. I forgot to mention that this is additional domain, not myusername.webfactional.com. Domain is in my root directory, not under htdocs of myusername.webfactional.com. Do I have to move complete (joomla) site to htdocs directory? I tried with symbolic link but this won't work.

Can you please provide some more info, like the location of your joomla site on the server's filesystem and the domain you want to use?

If you do not want to make such info publicly view-able, then please open a support ticket and we will take a closer look.

Please note that domains, applications and websites are 3 different entities in our environment, so a look at our documentation, as well as at the examples, might help you too.

I found out how to do it, quite simple. I had to temporary match mydomain.webfactional.com and new website. After work on site was finished, I matched new domain and new website. I needed some tome to be familiar with control panel but after I realized I like it :). Thank you for your tips.
