You can use a rewrite rule in your VHOST to get this working. The vhost configuration you should use depends on what webserver you are using. For nginx example you can check this docu:
For apache you can use something like this:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^12\.34\.56\.789$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [L,R=301]

Hope you can figure it out with this information.
