I'm new to the world of webmasters, so I haven't been able to appropriately search for an answer. I don't know the keywords that describe my situation.

.net, it takes you to the homepage with no slashes or anything after it. If you click on a different page, it takes you to that page, but doesn't change the url. It still says

http://126.96.36.199/ and I (think) it reads the requested URL from the header and serves my content.
I add this because as I've been reading someone said redirects to
mysite.example.com are generally used for free hosting providers and are looked down upon. I use
hallienoelle2.wpengine.com because it is recommended on
http://wpengine.com/support/how-to-configure-your-dns/ under the heading
