IP Pointing

IP Pointing enables you to point your domain name to a specific IP (Internet Protocol) address on the Internet. An IP Address is a unique string of numbers, usually shown in groups separated by periods (e.g., 123.123.123.123), that identifies a computer connected to the Internet.

It is possible to attach several websites to a single IP address; you can use IP Pointing if your website is the only one attached to an IP address. If it is not the only website then you will need to use Website Redirection as described below.

When to use IP Pointing

IP Pointing is a great feature to use if your website has a static IP address. With IP Pointing, visitors moving through your site will always see your domain and the file name of the page they are on, instead of the IP address and file name.

When to use Website Redirection

You should use Website Redirection (instead of IP Pointing) if:
  • you need to enter a port number after your IP address (e.g., http://123.123.123.123:90)
  • you need to enter a subdirectory or a filename after your IP address (e.g., http://209.153.199.2/subdirectory)

CA Domains -- CAnada Registers Here - cnames

Instead of creating separate hostnames and setting up a web presence for each, you can create CNAMEs for my-example.com and attach them to the www.my-example.com hostname. Instead of having to create multiple hostnames that contain the same information, you can create one hostname and then create and attach multiple CNAMEs to that hostname. Canonical Name records act as aliases for the hostnames they are attached to.
