That is totally untrue. The Title tag has to do with what is displayed in the
title bar. It has nothing whatsoever to do with his problem.

The address is NOT a static address, it's the wildcard address.
You may not use it for a static address. the host line in the HTTP
protocol is used to send the actual hostname being requested. Most
HTTP servers today can be set up as virtual servers and use different
hierarchies dependent on the name in the host line. Read your
documentation on your HTTP server for details.
