My domain changes from the domain to the IP once a visitor arrives at the website.

For example.
Typing the following into the browser: http://example.com

Results in: http://example.com

However, typing the following into the browser: http://www.example.com
Results in: http://#*$!.xx.xx.xx
(where #*$! represent the numbers of the IP)

Can anyone tell me why this is happening?

Thanks in advance.

If the domain name in the address bar switches to the IP address, there is probably some redirect code which tells the browser to do so. I would expect a wrongly configured 301 redirect to be causing this. Does this site use 301 redirects?
