Control panels have removed the ability to do a temporary URL in recent updates. This has made testing a website without moving the nameservers almost impossible without a dedicated IP.
To get around this you can use a sub-domain of an existing domain, by using the following:
- Determine the IP address assigned to the site you wish to test within cPanel
- Go to where your DNS is currently hosted and create a subdomain. i.e. test.domain.com
- Point the subdomain A record at the IP from cPanel
- Login to the cPanel account create an parked domain (Aliases) with no redirection
