    Question Access web sites via shared IP on Win server


    We have a Windows 2003 standard editon server with Helm.

    How can I access sites via my servers IP from a web browser?

    On Apache web servers you can access sites buy writing the domain name after the IP address, eg:

    Some shared hosting customers want to preview their websites from the server before their domain name is registred...

    I hope you get what I'm talking about.

    Thank you in advance,

    You can only do this if the directory of the website is set to "shared on the default webpage". The the correct way to see it would be IPNumber/DirectoryName

    Hope that helps

    Thank you.

    I made a virtual directory for the default site in IIS.

    I also found out you can't have eg as your alias as IIS don support dot's... is the way you have to do it...

    another way you can do is just simply add a new Sub domain name under your main domain. ---> redirect it to the folder of your client's account.
