Q. How can I visit my site before my domain resolves?

A. There are two methods that have varying chances of success.

Method One: You can use your domain's server IP address, plus your username like this:

http://x.x.x.x/~your_username/

For instance, if the IP address for your server is 2.2.2.2 and your username was joe, you can view your site using:

http://2.2.2.2/~joe/

Method Two: Open up your hosts file in your local computer. It is usually located in c:winntsystem32driversetchosts.

Add two entries to your hosts file like this:

x.x.x.x domain.com

and

x.x.x.x www.domain.com

Where the x.x.x.x is your server's IP address.
