How can I visit my site before propagation?

There are two methods that have varying chance of success.
Method One: 1) You can use your domain's server IP address, plus your FTP login name like this: http://x.x.x.x/~your_ftp_login_name For instance, if the IP address for your server is 2.2.2.2 and your FTP login username is joe, you can view your site early using: http://2.2.2.2/~joe Case is significant on the login name and don't forget the tilde (~). -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Method Two: Open up your hosts file in your local computer. It is usually located in c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts. Add two entries to your hosts file like this: x.x.x.x domain.com and x.x.x.x www.domain.com Where the x.x.x.x is your server's IP address.
