Just leave it blank, you don't need it.
Just do all the coding locally then upload to your ccgi webspace. If you were in a situation where you had a live version of wordpress and wanted to try out a new version / layout, just create another install of wordpress in another folder on the server and locally and use a different table prefix for the database. Then do your testing to get things working then just upload it to your live area.

Activation can take a while (up to 3 or 4 days). You will get an e-mail. You just need to wait for it to arrive.
