How do I change the IP address to a url

March 3, 2014 3.4k views
I have a server hosted somewhere else and It has a subdomain that I made on it. I was able to get it to redirect to the IP address of the droplet but I can not get it to show the url of the subdomain. It just shows the IP address. How can I accomplish this? Thanks for the help.
