How can I use my dedicated IP to reach my website?

The reason is that before I switch my hosting provider to GoDaddy, I would like to check that the website is transfer properly. I have installed Magento to a sub domain on my VPS with the one click application, everything installed as it should, but when I tried using my IP o access the subdomain, I would get a 404 error.


The Magento site is installed into the directory name exactly as the subdomain, I don't know what to type in the URL field. I can get into the Public_Html by typing http:.//111.222.333.444/~cpuser, but how do I access my other website that's not part of the Public_Html directory?

(Example: sub domain name., the name of the directory (folder) where magento gets install to is also named
