I registered a domain name through Google domains, and I forwarded the domain name (proper nameservers for DO to Google and all). But I still have a major problem.
When one visits the website (www.kathyehoward.com, for example) they are greeted with the home page. But when they click on a link. The IP address shows up in the URL (From www.kathyehoward.com to http://188.8.131.52/2015/06/23/hello-world/).
I don’t know if this is a duplicate question or not, but I wasn’t %100 sure on the terminology for “masking” an IP address, or how to describe it without using examples. I do believe it is an issue with DNS, however.
