    Question Site preview during DNS propagation

    While I'm waiting on DNS propagation for doublerebel.com, is there an IP/directory to which I can point my browser to preview my site? I would like to continue development but I can't doublecheck PHP installations - I don't want to go live with pages untested on server, so I have an 'in progress' index.html currently uploaded. This would also be very useful in case my ISP DNS cache lags behind... I looked around thinking I'd find the answer but I have found nothing in the FAQ, Forums, or Support :-/ . Thanks in advance!

    Hello,

    Our Shared Hosting product is serviced by the cPanel control panel. As such, you can view your site by using the IP address of the hosting server you have been assigned, and your control panel login username.

    i.e. http://IP.OF.HOSTING.SERVER/~USERNAME/

    This thread describes it in more detail.

    There's also the HOSTS file method where you change your HOSTS file on your PC to point to the new server, allowing you to effectively preview it on the new server without having to wait for propagation or you can use this online tool Previewasite.com
