Urgent help, how to enter old host using ip and user?
Hi, did the change of DNS and didnt thought that I cant enter cpanel.....
I do know the ip and nameserver, and I do know that you can enter using ip and account name, but I dont remember how it is normally,
And I dont want to ask host as sort of we been arguing.....
Forgot to say its a shared host.
Ah, its a WHM account, a reseller account, dont know if make any difference

I got the idea when I went to bed, remembered my new host gave me an ip/~accountname/ that is redirected to myserver something. So just used that adress and changed newserver.host to nameserver and I managed to enter.
From client area there is no way to enter cpanel.
So my old direction is https://nameofserver.nameserver.com:2083

If you just need access from your single workstation you can make a hosts file entry pointing the domain name to the old IP. The hosts file will take precedence over your DNS server with the new IP.
