I just purchased hosting and am waiting on the nameservers to be updated. In the meantime, I'm trying to update the index.html file and view it through the ip address that is provided on the cPanel main page. I can see that the file index.html is being updated but the changes are not being reflected when I point my browser to my ip address. I would like to make some progress building my website.
edit: No longer an issue, name server has been updated.
