Hi
I've registered the domain ibsapay.com (http://ibsapay.com) . In the domain name's panel I've set forwarding so it points to my machine whch has a static IP address. When I go to ibsapay.com it displays the ip address instead of domain name. Would you please tell me how can I manage it so the domain name is not replaced with IP address?
I've already created virtual host which didn't help.

Thanks

sound like your ISP is simply using a redirect rather than s standard A record

host ibsapay.com and
http://intodns.com/ibsapay.com says it's A Record is 80.74.129.151

ibsapay.com in browser brings up 46.14.187.92

Stale DNS? (I have Google DNS)


curl -Is http://46.14.187.92| \grep -E '^Server'Server: Apache/2.2.20 (Ubuntu)


curl -Is http://ibsapay.com| \grep -E '^Server'Server: Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS)


curl -Is http://80.74.129.151| \grep -E '^Server'Server: Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS)


curl -Is http://46.14.187.92| \grep -E '^Server'Server: Apache/2.2.20 (Ubuntu)

From public information available and these commands, I could assume you are Norman Kerr and are running Ubuntu at that the mail record(s) changed while I researched even this tiny bit.

HTH.

Whoever registered the domain for you used their own IP address instead of yours. They are simply forwarding users to the IP address you entered in the "control panel" (I assume this is from the people who registered your domain?).

This isn't something you can fix in the "control panel" since that's not the root of the issue. ICANN which is the organization that manages domain names (and DNS) will need to change their registration of your domain to a different IP address. The folks who registered your domain may or may not be able or willing to do this, but start by contacting whoever registered the domain for you.

set the redirect to have masking. a ton easier

that and if you install a board software set the board url as the domain so that the masking stays when you click board links

With a redirect, I think, your domain is given a Web forward. So when someone goes to your domain it tells their browser to go to a different address, in your case your IP. This is sort of like just typing your IP into the address bar, which is why that's what you see.

What you want to do is create a host (an "A") record that matches your domain (or a host within your domain) with your IP address. For instance, you could create a record with a host name www.ibsapay.com which points to 1.2.3.4 (or whatever your IP is), and then when a user types www.ibsapay.com into their browser, that's what they see. You might want to make another record from just ibsapay.com to your IP also, in case someone types that one in. (Although, for my own domains I usually use a redirect. So in your case, you'd just have the one record, and then typing ibsapay.com would just redirect you to www.ibsapay.com.)

If you're not sure about how to do this check your registrar's FAQ, or contact their support. They should be able to help you through making the record.
