URL converts to IP Address

By james ·

This is something that is driving me a bit crazy. I have a website running on ISS 6 using WSS 3 SP1. If I go to the address, everything resolves correctly, however the IP address appears in the address bar instead of the URL itself. Any ideas?

In the case of someone accessing the website from externally you will need to have a domain name associated to your IP address.

If you already do have a registered domain name log into your account from whom ever you use and check that the entry is matching up to your IP address, and that it isn't expired.

Are you using any other url conversion modules?

Are using asy url conversion modules eeelike urlrewriter or somthing like that. If you are using it, you may have to configure it may not be configured correctly. You can also use a domain resolution tool like <a href="http://www.ip-details.com/domain-host-search/">http://www.ip-details.com/domain-host-search/</a> to check if your domain address is being resolved correctly.
