The temporary URL for a website hosted on Hostgator looks like this: http://18.104.22.168/~account/.
How to find the IP for your account?
From Windows > Start button > in the search bar type “cmd”.
A black window will open. Then type there “ping yourmainwebsite.com”.
And you will see an IP showing up there like “pinging [22.214.171.124]..
That is the IP.
“~account” represents the name of the account that you have created under your main account.
A temporary URL is great if you want to test a website before changing its DNS on the registrar.
