Domain name resolves, but address bar shows numeric IP, screwing things up royally...
Posted on 2009-07-07
I set up a site on a hardhathosting VPS, and set up the DNS as well as I could figure out.
Typing the domain name brings me to the site, but then the domain name disappears from the address bar and it shows the numeric IP. This is really jamming me up because I'm running some non-free apps that require a valid domain name to work; they "call home" and fail authorization because they are reporting xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx rather than sitename.com.
