Redirect Ip To Domain

September 3, 2013 7.4k views
Hi there! I'm using apache web server on Ubuntu and I need to disable the ability for people to access the website by using the server's IP address in a web browser. I want it so that when someone attempts to browse to the IP address they get Redirect to the domain. I tried to google it, I found few tutorials, but they dont work for me. What configurations would be necessary to do that?

Edit /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default and set DocumentRoot to /dev/null.

Add this line:

Redirect /

Finally, restart apache:

sudo service apache2 restart
@robert_h_boy: Create a virtualhost for the IP address:

Replace with your IP address, and with your actual domain name you want to redirect to.
