rewrite URL to hide IP address?

hello,
im hosting my own website (ASP.NET) and im redirecting the page from the 3rd party site, where i purchased the domain name from.
When you type the www.mysite.com it will appear http://iP-ADDRESS/mysite.com.

Is there a way to 'hide' the ip-address and show it as it is (www.mysite.com)???

A cheap 'trick" ... put up a frames page on the hosted site and load you pages inside the frame ... then there is one static URL and you can load anything from anywhere inside the frames without the URL changing ... nobody will ever know where it is loading from unless they look at the URL in the status bar.

i dont mind if they know the ip address i just dont want to show it.
Ive created a virtual directory in c:\mywebs\web1, now when i access the web from the outside it is showing me  http://ip-address/web1 id like http://www.web1
