This isn't so much of a problem, but would like to know why this happens.

we have a dedicated server running WHM. If I access the server via its IP address directly I am automatically redirected to

I know how to edit this page (this isnt the problem)

I'm just curious why I get redirected to this .cgi page, rather than simply remain @ and view my default "landing page", if you like.

What setting could I change so that if anyone visits my server IP, they do not get redirected to

For instance if you visit (google), you view the google home page, but URL remains the same.

Hope this makes sense.
