How to view website on a shared IP

Not all websites require a dedicated IP address, and most simple sites will be using a shared IP, but how do you view a website on a shared IP before it propagates?

Simply use the ~ACCOUNTUSERNAME method to access their website.

http://IPADDRESS/~accountusername/

Example

Your IP address is: 94.76.233.4
Your Account Name is: voodish
Output: http://94.76.233.4/~voodish/

    You can also use a service like whatwillitlooklike.com to do this if the ~ does not work.

    The ~ has to be configured on the server and can be a security problem so a lot of hosting providers disable it.
