First things first, I googled this however I didn't find anything. To be honest, I am not quite sure what my key words should be.
What I am trying to achieve is access a site through it's IP address rather than its URL. For example - I won't open google with google.com, but rather with http://188.8.131.52 . So far so good. However, most sites have shared hosting. So that 1 IP address is hosting multiple web pages. From what I found out from google and from some personal 'tests' they mostly work on the principle:
http://IPaddress/~user , where user is usually 8 letters/digits.
So here is where my question stands - is it possible and if yes, how can I find the "user" so that I can access the site this way?
Thanks in advance for any input.
Sorry for the links, didn't realise they were inappropriate.
However, until when will all my actions be moderated? This topic took like 5 days to get approved :/ I almost forgot I posted it. And due to that delay the topic is now on page 2 (despite actually being approved yesterday/today) where almost no one will look :|
