Domain Name and IP Address


I'm hosting a web site on my Linux Red Hat Fedora Core 4 box using Apache and I just purchased a domain name for it. Right now I have it setup where the domain name forwards to the IP address, however when you drag your mouse over all the links on my page it still shows the IP address instead of the domain name. Is there a way for it to display the domain name instead of the IP address?

Thanks.

EviLBoX, all the link from your website is following what u type on
http://domain_or_ip so what u see in the web is follow this

if you type domain mean u can see domain but if u type ip u will not get domain , u will get ip instead of domain

Cool

Most of us utilize dictionary for clarification during explanations. Try here for solid understanding of individual variables in solving the complex endeavors we come upon with our Linux Distro's and hardware changes. Good reading...http://www.wiki.com
