Resolving IP address

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
This isn't so much a "how do I do this" question, as a "what is going on" question.  I have a web server with 8 IP addresses, from to  I've assigned address to www.cerebrum.ca.

I can see www.cerebrum.ca in any browser, but when I type, all I see is the welcome page (iisstart.htm) for IIS which appears to be the default web site for the server.

Why is this happening?  Shouldn't I be able to type the IP address and get the same result as typing in the URL?
