How to 301 redirect IP to domain? Basically my site is accessible from and the relevant ip on which it is pointing

I have read major tutorials and questions on how to 301 redirect the ip to my main domain but everything seems irrelevant - either I couldnt locate the relevant lines to be changed or the versions of ubuntu are different. Any help here is appreciated?

Create a default server block if you haven’t got one already with

server {
	listen 80 default_server;
	return 301;

If you already have a default server block, all you have to add is the return line.

This will redirect any requests that do not match a configured virtual host (server block in nginx)

Man, you saved my life too. Thank You so much!!!
