Recommended way to redirect server IP to Domain?[Self Solve]

Right now I run one site on Vesta and it has SSL on it. Currently by default when you go to http://111.111.111.111 it shows the "default.domain - Powered by VESTA" default page for a new site. I just want the http://111.111.111.111 to redirect to http://domain.com or https://domain.com as http://domain.com already goes to https://domain.com.

Which conf is best to put this in and what method?

With my 1 ip server I was able to figure out how to do it by editing the one nginx conf below. This worked for me on a 1 IP VPS running Ubuntu with default templates:

/etc/nginx/conf.d/[IP ADDRESS].conf

Code: Select all

server {
    listen       [IP ADDRESS]:80 default;
    server_name  _;
    access_log  /var/log/nginx/[IP ADDRESS].log main;
    location / {
         return 301 https://DOMAINNAME.com;
   }
}
