I am using the wordpress and i cannot get the host name to appear in the IP address. Only the IP address will show even if you call on the url. I have been all around web min and can not seem to find how to change it.
Thanks for any help
I'd love to help you get to the bottom of your problem but I can't make sense of your question. Could you provide more information on precisely what you are trying?
When you visit the site, the address bar displays the IP address of the blog rather than the name of the site. The name of the site is crucifiedwithchrist.fbcwalton.org and when you go to the site, it will display 126.96.36.199 instead of the crucifiedwithchrist.fbcwalton.org. How can i get it to display it in the address bar?
From Windows I just ran
and got this response
This suggests to me that the nameservers your domain name are registered on do not actually point to your server (188.8.131.52) but another server (184.108.40.206). This seems to be a somewhat common practice with some hosting companies. Basically they point the domain to their own servers by default. If you then host your own site then they redirect it to your IP.
Assuming I'm right, there are a number of ways to create the situation you want but unless you can directly configure the nameserver yourself to point straight to your IP then you'll need to negotiate with the domain name provider.
Depending on the setup (hence the question) you may be able to change the way the redirect takes place. Even if your main site is hosted then you still may be able to do it (depending on how much control the host provides).
I have just been having a bit of a read online and I'm sure there's probably also a way to change this in apache config (on your TKL) but you'll need to do some serious googling or get some advice from someone with much more knowledge than me (like Liraz ).
$ host -t a crucifiedwithchrist.fbcwalton.org

Thanks! I added the record like you said and works perfect.
