We are not replacing the IP address with the host name. Furthermore we allow accessing the website by IP if there is no license key applied which avoids receiving the trial message.
When the request is not authenticated and you attempt to login we redirect the requests to HttpContext.Current.Request.RawUrl which does not include the host. You cold find more description at MSDN
