Question

Redirect Ip To Domain

  • Posted September 3, 2013

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?

@robert_h_boy: Create a virtualhost for the IP address: <br><a href=“https://p.kk7.me/qeqihuluhe.nginx”>https://p.kk7.me/qeqihuluhe.nginx</a> <br> <br>Replace 1.2.3.4 with your IP address, and yourdomain.com with your actual domain name you want to redirect to.

what about for nginx?
