Hey Giorgio,

I think rewrite rules are the wrong approach in your situation.

What do you mean by “responds showing the IP address”? Do you mean that you cannot enter the domain name to access the application? In this case it is a configuration issue. If your domain is set up with the IP address of your server, it should work as you expect it. If not, it is either a DNS or an application server issue.

2. If your uses do not want the address in the browser bar to change regardless on which page they are, you may take a look at the following thread:

I hope this helps :-)
