Default how to reach my base site to test before domain resolution ?

Hello, I would like to test my sites before redirecting the domain names.
I arrive to reach the www folder of the users with an address of the www.domain.tld/~user1 type.

I speak about the "www" which is on the same level as users folder.

use the hosts file on your PC to map the domain temporarily. Linux: vi /etc/hosts Windows: edit C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc (from memory..could be wrong..been a while and I don't use windows).

syntax is very simple:

IP Host

so as a demo say your server is then www.domain.tld

Save and Exit...You can set as many domains as you want this way and only YOU will see them that way....Just don't forget to remove them when you go live cause you could go nutts later trying to make changes and your hosts file is overriding them on your machine...

again this is done from the machine you want to view the sites from...not the server itself...
