Question

Domain name redirects to IP address

I registered a new domain, changed its nameservers to point to DO’s. I went to my control panel, added a new domain: maghnatis.com

Now when I goto http://maghnatis.com the site redirects to the IP address. How can I keep it pointing to the domain name?

And when I goto http://www.maghnatis.com (notice www.) it gives: Server not found
