    http://ip address

    New to dedicated server and struggling!

    We have a dedicated server with 4 sites running. All accessed through their domain names.

    Is it possible to also have a site on the server as http://ip address for a 'white label' programme?

    I am not sure what you intend to do? Most likely, it is possible, even if with some manual hacking.

    We have a bsiness to consumer website and also a white lable programme for our business to business partners.

    But we do share a single page that we want to 'hide' from our partners clients.

    currently they visit http://www.domain/page1 and we want to change this to: http://www.111.111.111.111/page1

    So I want to replace the domin name with our ip address, I don't know if this is possible or safe even.

    You need to purchase the ip addresses.

    You can have
    http://ip1
    http://ip2
    http://ip3
    http://ip4

    Have the IP assigned only to that domain name, do you use a control panel of some sort?

    I don't exactly get what you trying to do but
    http://www.111.111.111.111/page1 is definitely possible since you got the ip and the server. You still can have http://www.domain/page1 to go with it if you want.

    Hi, create the virtual host in the apache conf and you are all set or create a new account in cPanel with dedicated IP for it.

    Good luck.

    Put this at the end of apache httpd.conf (can run under Windows too):

    NameVirtualHost 11.22.33.44

    <VirtualHost domain1.cmo>
    DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/domain1cmodir"
    ServerName domain1.cmo
    <Directory "/var/www/html/domain1cmodir">
    allow from all
    Options +Indexes
    </Directory>
    ServerAlias *.domain1dir.cmo
    </VirtualHost>

    <VirtualHost 11.22.33.44>
    DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/"
    ServerName 11.22.33.44
    <Directory "/var/www/html/">
    allow from all
    Options +Indexes
    </Directory>
    </VirtualHost>

    First is for domain, next is for IP, ServerAlias you may skip.

    In IIS, configure the default website to listen on port 80 on the IP you wish this to broadbast on. Make sure there is no host header specified and navigate to the ip address - you should see the page.

    Under Windows (using IIS) this is very simple.

    You'd basically set-up your white label site in IIS with the IP in question but don't assign a host header to it.

    When a request comes in IIS and it is trying to determine which site should respond to the request, it goes in the following order:

    1. Site that matches the IP address AND the host header (yoursite.com)
    2. Site that matches the IP address
    3. Site that processes all unassigned
