How do I preview my site by its IP

    If I try to access my site via its IP address, I get my hosting company's default page and not the content I uploaded via FTP. How do I set up my domain to use the IP address by default and not the domain that I will be using once staging is complete?

    I've tried going to IP addresses > default domain > but there is nothing listed.

    Which version of Plesk is this?
    And is your IP address exclusive or shared?

    Anyway, in case you are using 8.6, you'd go to Client, then select IP Pool, then click on the 1 that you'll see to the right of the IP under Hosting (assuming only one hosting account is set up).

    You can then put a blob in the radio button and click on the Set As Default button.
