Great answer @sugarhill

It would be great if @julianlampert can elaborate on his answer!

And don’t forget… Your domain must resolv to your IP (DNS).

This should be an easy fix:

  1. login to your wordpress dashboard
  2. left menu select “Settings” --> “General”
  3. then change both “WordPress Address (URL)” and “Site Address (URL)” from your IP to your domain name (don’t forget to also put http:// in front of your domain, or https:// if you have SSL) and hit “save changes”
  4. goto “Settings” --> “Permalinks” and click on “save changes”

Voila, you should be good to go :)
