Temporary Hsphere URL to view website before making dns changes

User would like to view contents of domain
before making DNS changes. Typically occurs when users are migrating
from another hosting provider and wants to make certain the site is
configured properly before making any changes.

Each account within H-Sphere will create an instant domain alias for
every domain contained within it. This is true for every domain except
those utilizing a dedicated IP, which can be viewed directly via the IP
address. To view any other domain on a temporary URL before making DNS
changes, simply log into your H-Sphere control panel, select web
options, select the domain you wish to work with (if more than 1 domain
in the account), scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen and
click on the looking glass beside the "Instant Domain Alias"
