Hi there,

Yes, you can create servers without associating a domain name with them. You could use the server IP address to access them directly rather than using a specific domain name.

Then whenever you are ready you can change your DNS records to point to the server IP address at any time.

Here are a few useful articles:

  • How to manage your domains once you are ready to do so:

Hope that this helps.

Best,

Bobby
