    Test Web Site without Domain

    Hello Forum

    I have ISPConfig- running without any problems but I have a user who wants to test your site before moving the domain and I have the following problem:

    1. I can not find how to do a test site before passing the domain (in cpanel works http : // <direccion-ip> / ~ <username>) ISPConfig but I can not do.

    Buy ISPCONFIG3 Manual (It's great, congratulations) but can not find how to make this clear solution.

    The server is only connected to the Internet and not on a LAN or Intranet. I have not installed graphical environment for testing with localhost.

    Thank you very much to all and please excuse my English, I'm from Colombia.

    Happy 2011

    The hosts file solution above won't work on a remote server connected only to internet.

    You could make a subdomain of an existing domain that redirects to the site on your server.

    Just put that above line in the clients hosts file, then they'll ask your webserver even without the DNS being in place.
