Because not all websites can be reached that way, due to virtual 
hosting. Take my website for example (don't look at it, it's really not 
interesting :) ). http://roelschroeven.net gives a normal webpage, while 
http://64.191.37.195 (which is the ip-address for that domain) gives a 
generic page (in this case something that shouldn't really be there IMHO).
