I'm trying to find out alternative ways to access a website (not mine), which has temporarily lost its domain name due to it expiring. The site owner didn't realise the domain would expire and it has expired. However, I DO know that the site is still running just fine - I just need a way to access it other than via its domain.
But this website happens to NOT be the only site on its (hosting provider's) server IP address. Entering in its IP address will not point to the site I want to access.
I do know, that if a given website happens to be the subdomain for ANOTHER domain, you can try and use online tools to find a 'naked' subdomain url that the owner has specified for the site in question. (e.g.
But the site I want to access, is not a subdomain, it's a parent domain. On shared IP address hosting.
The only other way I know of accessing a site other than via its 'given' domain, any alternative domains pointing to the same site (which you just happen to know or discover via domain research), or a 'naked' subdomain if it turns out to be such, is via THIS type of URL, which the hosting provider gives the siteowner at the beginning for use use until their intended domain's DNS propagates:
Is this url type above the only other way to access a parent domain's site? And if you don't know what this is, (because you are not the siteowner) is there any way, apart from brute-force attack, to figure out what this 'raw' server IP site URL is?
You can always figure out the server IP bit, just not the bit after that pertains to their cpanel/webhosting account username.
Are we reduced to guessing or brute-forcing this, or are there tools that can shed some light on finding out this 'raw' URL address?
