Re: can not access my website using ip adress or domain name

It looks like the domain is simply redirecting to the IP address (Forwarding).  This drops the domain from the address bar and would only work with a dedicated IP address.

 

To properly point the domain it is a modification to the DNS.  There should be an existing A record for host @, update the IP address to that of your hosting account.

Host: @
