I've try some setting, like adding a HostName ( => in the GoDaddy DNS management page and also set the fowarding to


But now when I type the domain in a browser, in my case Chrome, the url changes to the IP address of the host instead of keeping the domain name.


What should I do to have it keeping the domaine name in the address bar?
