Default Accessing web site by its ip address

Please kindly help with this matter. Is it possible to access a web site in browser by its ip address if I have several web sites at this ip address?

For example, I have several web sites at this ip 85.249.237.55: domain1.com, domain2.com, domain3.com etc

If I just type http://85.249.237.55 ispconfig of course displays a shared ip message

Can I access, say, domain1.com without actually typing http://domain1.com?

I need this for two following reasons.
1) sometimes a client wants to set up and actually see his site before a new dns entry fully propagates
2) say there's a working site somethere http://www.somesite.com, and its owner asks our web studio to redesign this site, and once it's finished, change the dns records of somesite.com to point to our server. obviously the easiest way is to set up somesite.com at our ispconfig server at once (so we won't have to move this site later), do the redesign work and when it's over just ask the client to change the dns records. but of course during this period the client would want to see how the work is progressing and so this site must somehow be accessible.

Looking forward to your replies!
