When migrating a website to our servers you will usually want to preview the site before changing the DNS.
You can change your "hosts" file to force your PC to resolve your domain to the new server while everyone else continues to see the site on the old server:
Here is how to do it on MAC:
You may either type Terminal on the Spotlight, or by going into Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal.
In the terminal window you just opened copy/paste the command string below, and press return.
sudo nano /private/etc/hosts
You'll be prompted to enter your Mac user's password. NOTE: you won't see the cursor move. This is normal, so press return when done.
For example, it should look like:
Make sure that there is a space between the IP and the URL! Otherwise, the rule will not work.
Be sure to place domain.com with your actual domain name. If you're not sure which IP address to use, please contact our Support Department for further assistance.
This completes the hosts file modification, so you should now be able to see your site here with us using your domain in your browser's address bar.
When testing is complete you may undo these changes by repeating the steps above but removing the information entered in step 3.
