Hello, I am hosting a website on UK2 which Let me see before DNS propagation is done. Is possible and just how will i get it done?

Live support is offline today, so can't obtain a quick answer there it appears.

Thanks,

Alex
You are able to end up finding it through the Ip, or add some Ip from the server directly into your "computers" primary "hosts" file under "drivers >> etc" usually in Home windows and link that aimed at your websiteOrsite and you ought to have the ability to begin to see the site this way too.

Otherwise yes, Ip with username etc.

Sounds perfect, it is possible to syntax with this?

IP-Address/~username
Be sure to improve your .hosts file back (if you are using that method) after going 'production' on UK2! :-)
Thanks all!

Hey Alex,

Just in case you haven't carried this out yet, here are a few techniques based on your OS:

Home windows 7
Code: notepad c:windowssystem32driversetchosts OSX
Open terminal from programs>utilities>terminal
Code: sudo vim /etc/hosts
Also found one other way which fits for UK2, as live support returned online.

Make use of your primary domain, then the brand new domain. For instance:

http://www.mymaindomain.co.uk/mynewdomain.co.uk/

Note the possible lack of www. on mynewdomain.co.united kingdom. You will not get images etc correctly, but it is enough that i can see things i wanted to determine what was that I have first got it ready up properly and am just awaiting DNS to solve.
