    I got a startle this morning when I tried to access a web page via "http://(IP ADDRESS)/~USERNAME".
    It redirected to this url: http://bogus_host_without_reverse_dns/~username. :eek:
    This page is accessible via the domain name, and I have had no problems accessing the control panel to upload files, change email settings, etc. In other words, everything seems to be in normal working order, except when I try to view the page via the numerical IP/username address.
    Is there something wrong here?
    If anybody knows that there could be a problem here please let me know, and if you can help me with this please PM me and I will send you the IP and username details so you can check it out. :confused:

    David,
    Was this one of your sites or just a site you were visiting with another host. There are ways to block people from viewing a site like that, usually it's on the browser side depending on what url was used....sort of like a redirect depending on what was typed in.

    Yes it is one of "my" sites. Just a small account with a cheapo host for a home page for my niece to put a few pictures on and have her own hername@herdomain email address.
    The url in question is the IP/username address they gave so that I could access and upload files before the domain name became live.
    As I said, other than this, everything is normal.
    I'd like to think that it's normal for this not to be accessible via the IP # after the domain name becomes live, but the "bogus_host_etc" url that appears in the browser is pretty alarming. :confused:
    I don't want to post the IP/username info here on the board, but if you don't mind taking a look I'll PM it to you; there's not anything really sensitive or confidential so I won't mind sending you the info.
    Thanks for the response. :confused:

    It's probably because your host did not setup a reverse mapping entry into the DNS and someone's trying to make a big deal about it. You need to contact your hosting company about it. They can track it down for you.
