Can't access site by IP

  1. I'm working on migrating a site over to Winhost, but I need to keep the domain name pointed at the old site while making some changes on the Winhost site. I can't seem to access the Winhost site using just the IP address though. For example, if I have a file called test.htm on Winost and I use the url "" I get a 404 file not found page. Is there somethign I need to add to the URL or maybe a change I need to make in IIS?

    That is correct, you can't access the site using an IP. You would use the secondary URL that we provide to you instead. It's listed in your control panel site manager.
  3. That worked, thanks!
