Beside all these problems,one more that i can see is, when i tried to ping your domain i.e
this points to some other IP address i.e. 22.214.171.124, which means your Domain's "A" or "MX" record is still pointing to a wrong IP i.e. 126.96.36.199
Make sure both the A and MX record of your domain name points to correct and same IP address, i.e. 188.8.131.52
let me know incase you need any other details.

Hi Again Yep, It's definitely only one website. I even reinstalled my whole machine this morning because i thought it might have been when I was experimenting yesterday. If you go to http://184.108.40.206/default.htm and http://www.titanic-collector.co.uk/default.htm
you can see their the same page.
I edited the page to make sure I was certain. Hopefully on your browser, you can see if you go to the titanic url, it replaces it in the address bar with the 86 address.

the ip address issue is probably because web forwarding is being used. I presume that
www.titanic-collector.co.uk goes to reg-123 (as they probably own it and I'm just renting it). They then forward all requests to that site to my IP Address. I wouldn't expect that to be a problem, but maybe
that's got something to do with it

You must confirm this thing from the domain registrars that the request is being forwarded to you IP using some A or MX record... as it seems that they are just redirecting the control to your IP.
while I tried accessing your site using the domain name like this
http://www.titanic-collerctor.co.uk then it simply redirected to your IP address.

I'll log a support request with the domain registrar regarding the A and MX records.
In the mean time, something else I've found out that may be of interest. I've turned on all logging with IIS and done some experiments. Below are the results (me.aspx doesn't exist):
http://localhost/me.aspx IE shows resource not found, IIS adds log entry with full details
http://220.127.116.11/me.aspx IE shows resource not found, IIS adds log entry with full details
http://www.titanic-collector.co.uk/me.aspx IE shows resource not found, no log entry created
Does this bring out any ideas?

This simply means that the domain is pointing some where else.

but if the domain is pointing somewhere else, why does it open up my page if I use the same domain with a valid html page?

I tried accessing this http://titanic-collector.co.uk/dummy.html and it redirects me to
It means all the requests are some how directed to your IP, not forwarded. You should better consult with your Domain Registrar and Hosting Administrators about this.

Can you please try the following file under
please open it in notepad and add your IP and domain name as instructed in the file

Just thought I'd let you all know the outcome. It turns out that theweb forwarding people I chose were intercepting all ASPX files and trying to run them on their own server. This means that by using the IP address, it was going direct to my router and
all was well, but using the domain name was going via their servers, being intercepted and never getting to my machine.
I've now added DNS entries so that all traffic for the domain name is forwarded to my IP address and it all works fine now.
Thanks all for your responses
