Ip number problems on server

Ok, this has been posted before but i never got a solution. I have a webserver running on IIS, I have made somone a user account e.g user an they have given me their domain details, I have forwarded the domain (with ukreg.com) to my server but the problem is when you type in www.mydomain.com the site shows up and instead of the url staying in the bar it changes to my ip addy (172.0.0.2)-thats a default example. IS there anyway to make it so the domain name stays in the browser and when u hover mouse over navbar the domain shows intead of an ip address. I dont think a reverse dns will do the trick as this is just an account in the webserver (I have many more sites hosted on my server) and http://domain.com/requiredpage doesnt seem to work as a link either. It seems to want to stick to ip numbers, is there anyway i can mask the ip address and make the domain show up on all pages on my IIS server? Please help me on this one ;).

If you first access the domain correctly and then after clicking a link it turns into an ip most likely the problem is that the person who made the website will need to change the links to reflect that of the domain or use relative paths.

Did you do a ping to the domain outside form your network? if so did it show you the correct IP address?

It might be that the people who had control over the DNS records first still have control and are redirecting the domain to your IP. Give us the real domain and we can check, also tell us what IP it should really point to.

Thats where the problem is, the domain is stil pointed to 213.171.192.236, they redirect it to you, i.e. 80.37.251.231:1031/stuff/ which has PHP which does not execute...

If you cannot direct the DNS records to you directly then you will have to ask them to put up a page with frames, and in one of the frames they need to call your site, this is the only way you can keep the domain in the address bar.

Thanks for your help. Its not possible to edit the dns records for that site because its not the main webbie. I have done the framed option, altho its not exactly what i am looking for because the url stays the same all the time on all pages. I appreciate your help, Good luck on points ;).
