Set IP address to point to certain domain
I have a Linux VPS, DirectAdmin as web panel and already set a domain to it. everything is OK and I can see my website in my browser using domain name.
Now I need to have access to my site using its IP address. something like http://126.96.36.199, but when I try to load my site in a browser using its IP I get below message and I have to post-fix my IP with /~admin (http://188.8.131.52/~admin) to get it work.
So how can I configure my IP to point to my public_html folder without and ~admin like phrase?

You can't. You would have to request an upgrade to a higher service tier that includes a dedicated IP address.
Why do you "need to have access to [your] site using its IP address" anyway?

There is a SMS Printer that we can configure it to access web via GPRS. but it does not accept domain name and needs destination IP address.
