Accessing your web directory without a domain


#1

Hi, I’m wondering if it is possible to access your webpage directly from the hosted machine (I’m waiting for my domain registration to propagate through the all the name servers). I have my account hosted on kiki, and I tried accessing it through url variations of kiki.dreamhost.com, but I’ve had no luck. Any suggestions?

Have a look at the last section of the following knowledge base article:

Hope it helps.
All the best,

Oops, I probably should have seen that earlier. Sorry about that.

I do have another question, though. I decided to use nslookup with the dreamhost nameservers and search for my domain. I actually found that my domain is listed on their server, and so I entered the IP address given but it returns a “Temporarily Unavailable; error id: bad_httpd_conf” error. Any idea what this is?
