Temporary URL does not work
Posted by Serhiy Hryva on 31 January 2011 06:09 PM
For example: http://001.2.03.04/~username

The temporary URL consisting of a numeric IP address or the server name followed by a tilde (~) and your username is a convenient way to access your new hosting account with WebNet Hosting before you change your nameservers to point to our network. However, due to recent PCI Compliance regulations this functionality has been disabled on many of our servers because it exposes the username of the account to the internet - and therefore, one half of the login credentials for a user's account. As a workaround you *may* be able to use this same address with https instead of http but even that may soon be considered a PCI failure.  

Try using the form: https://001.2.03.04/~username
