How to run Files from cPanel before linking them to a domain?

I want to move my website to a new hosting server. So, I have purchased a new hosting package. I have moved all of my website files to new hosting cPanel. I have not updated the domain nameservers yet. I want to run those files in cPanel before linking them to my domain. How can I do that? because I have tried to open my first webpage using their given IP address for example http://158.258.15.15/index.html but it does not work. Some one can tell me any solution?

For shared hosting you need to know the user name and then it doesn't always work.

Your best bet is to contact your host's support team.

There is a temporary URL format like http://158.258.15.15/~username/index.html, you can just have a try to see if it is enabled.

Better still, edit the hosts file and see the site even before name server is changed.

Works best for wordpress and other sites, which will need edits to work with temp URL.

I would recommend you to contact your hosting provider for this. As some of them may have a special link as IP access may be blocked.
