Test address?

    Is there a way or address that I can test a hosting account that has been setup prior to transfering the domain name? Something like http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/~username/ in apache? Seems like there has to be a way to do this... I'm transfering several production domains from an old Windows server onto my new Windows server with PLESK and need a simple way to test these domains before moving their domain names.

    testing a domain without dns:

    in your browser:

    Or edit your hosts file in the following directory:


    under the line localhost
    add the following line (add the bottom) of the file:

    hostingipadres(ipadres of server!) domainnaam.com

    This way you can bypass the dns-server for the domain.
