Question about using shared web servers for running php scripts and ethernet shield

Hello,
I purchased web space on shared server. when i do find ip address of my domain name using dig, it gives me some value like 208.91.199.22. When I type the same ip address on internet browser, it displays a standard page saying this address is that off a shared web server. Hence it cannot identify the domainname associated with it. So now question is; for programming ethernet shield can i give directly domain name like laxmicompanies.com ? or how do i circumvent this issue ?

Regards

You must send the "Host:" parameter to a virtual host server.
Code: [Select]
If(client.connect(serverIP,serverPort)) {
   // send request
   client.println("GET /mypage.php HTTP/1.1");
   client.println("Host: www.laxmicompanies.com");
   client.println("Connection: close\r\n");

   // read response
   while(client.connected()) {
      while(client.available()) {
         Serial.write(client.read());
      }
   }
   client.stop();
}
