    If you are using Windows, add the IP and domain in your "C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts" file.

    Code:
    10.0.0.1	www.domaintotest.tld

    It is no matter ow many IPs you have.
    The hosts file is just a kind of static DNS for your machine....

    In linux you will find it in /etc/

    Sorry for my language, I think you are not getting me....
    My requirement is:
    I host a website on ISPConfig server, but that domain is pointed on a different server. Now, I want to test the web pages, hosted in ISPConfig from any client computer of my network without pointing the domain on ISPConfig server.
    I am shifting domains from my old server to ISPConfig server and my working flow is:
    1. For the domains which are pointed on my old server, First I create client on ISPConfig and give control panel to the my customer.
    2. Then my customer add their sites and upload their pages and request me to point their domain on ISPConfig.

    Now my problem is, most of the client forget to remove default index.html of web folder, which they dont understand and call me and scold me.... So, I want to get ride of that problem. I want to check thier site from browser before pointing their site to ISPConfig server.

    Hope you understand my problem now....
    please suggest.....
