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 @
xx.xxx.xx.xxx/ 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 xx.xxx.xx.xxx/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi
For instance if you visit 126.96.36.199 (google), you view the google home page, but URL remains the same.
Hope this makes sense.
