Hi there! I'm new in Webfaction and I have a few questions. Firs of all, it's possible to create a wordpress site without a domain? Then when my test site is finished just point the DNS of my new domain to that test site? I'm not really sure how to create a test site. Could anyone help me with this question? Thanks a lot!

You can actually use the YOUR_ACCOUNT.webfactional.com domain or a sub-domain of that to host your test site with. Then once you have your own domain, change the domain assigned to the website in the control panel. You will also want to check to make sure that the siteurl and home entries in the database are updated when you change the domain.
