Default Test with Virtual IP Address

I have moved all of my files to a different server, but I want to test it before I change my nameservers. The IP address doesn't work because I use ISPConfig's control panel with a shared IP. Is there a way to look at it without changing the nameserver settings?

I want it to be accessible online. I just don't want to test it before changing my domain's dns settings. This wouldn't be a problem if I didn't have a shared IP. So, is there a way to test a website setup with ISPConfig using a shared IP before redirecting the domain.

The solution I posted works with public IP addresses as well.

Will editing the hosts file screw up the other websites using this ip?

No, they will continue to work.
