Hi @yahoo1294,

It seems like you haven’t configured properly your Apache Virtual Configuration or added an .htaccess redirect.

Firstly,I’ll recommend checking out the /etc/apache2/sites-available/example.com.conf where example.com will need to be replaced with your domain name. There you might have created a redirect to your IP address. If you are unsure what changes to do, I’ll recommend checking out the following Apache article:

If you are still unsure afterwards, I’ll recommend posting your config here so that we can assist you with it.

Another possibility would be your .htaccess having a redirect to your IP address. The .htaccess will be placed in your website’s document root. I’ll recommend checking out there.
