Question

Redirect IP to domain name

My question is how can I redirect a user to a domain if he uses an IP instead of the domain.

The website I’m asking about is on a LAMP server. I don’t know if it matters, but it uses a virtual host.

Hi @Dantcho,

You can achieve this with a rewrite in an htaccess file in your website’s directory.

You will want to create an .htaccess file in that directory with the following (replacing the IP and domain with your own):

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

Kind regards, Kalin

Good Morning,

I am having a similar problem, I need to direct my server by IP/phpmyadmin, as in the example:

https://myip/phpmyadmin dedirect to https://mysite.com/phpmyadmin

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^XXX.XX.XXX.XXX$ (my ip) RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://mysite.com/$1 [L,R=301]

I was only able to with the above rules direct my IP to mysite.

hello, i just using the .htaccess already but why my IP is not redirect to my Domain ? Thank you so much
