Introduction: Find the IP Address of a Website Using Command Prompt

This Instructable will show you how to find the IP address of of any website you want and find where the IP address originates from.
And using this method instead of pinging the address shows you the fastest connection speed between servers/connections.

Btw, tell me how you go using it.

Step 1: Find the IP Address

Open command prompt and type in "tracert" then type in the website for example "tracert www.instructables.com" without these things"".

The second picture shows what comes up.

The IP address is what comes up next to where it says "tracing route to (the website you inserted)(the IP address).

Step 2: Tracing the IP Address

To trace where the signal originates from use a website like this and that tells you where it originates from, but to find the company and other things about them use this.

That concludes my instructable.
Don't forget to rate it.
Thanks.

Well, IP address is just not sufficient to route to your website. The server which has the above address holds many websites as that of yours. Thus, it just displays the default page instead of your webpage.

There are 2 ways to find the IP address of a website. One way is by using PING in command prompt:- start->run->cmd->ping google.com. Another way is by using Domain Host Search in Ip-details.com which gives the IP address of the website, Service Provider, Country etc..

Hey I have a small problem.
My computer was recently stolen. I think I found it for sale in a website.
I have the URL link for the website, but I do not know how to trace it.
Can you help me to find the IP aadress for the website and maybe even the location from where the add was posted?

The link is this, it is a Latvian web-site:

just like the last person 69.63.189.11 and 69.63.189.16 and 69.63.181.12 also another thing that might work is if you try a modified version of the facebook script to access the site directly from the wdks server which is not restricted.
jacobglaw@hotmail.com let me know if it works for you.

nmikovic (author)2011-04-07

OK, you enter :
tracert www.website.com
and you get the IP.So to use it you need to go to :
www.ip2location.com
On the right side there is a ip location.Just enter the IP you got and sometimes you may get the post number of the corporation.

DrJekyl (author)2009-03-07

That was good. Looks like it traces through all the IP addresses which are between the target IP address and my machine. Those intermediataries are ISPs, Regional routers and HTTP servers.

Yeah, it does that, It also shows the DNS servers.

author
alfred_a (author)2011-01-25

You can also use one of the many DNS and IP dedicated web sites like http://www.dnsfrog.com but I think a ping is the fastest way...

Hine89 (author)2010-11-02

Another way to get the IP address of a website is to type into CMD, "nslookup (website)", and the "Address" at the bottom will be the website's IP.

rsscarface138 (author)2010-01-05

Truly gr8, but could u plz provide details how we can pass diff website blocks or create those blocks with the available info? Thanx

author

Getting around blocked sites is as easy as using a proxy server, just search on Instructables for information. Blocking websites is a lot harder unless you have access to the router or the networks proxy server.

author

then could u tell me how to get access to the router or the networks proxy server of a particular website?

author

Try searching for it.

Cool, Glad you liked it.

Jjolleygal99 (author)2009-06-04

I liked your instructable. But I was wondering, can you be more specific when typing in the website? Like instead of just, www.instructables.com, could you do like, www.instructables.com/johnna, and get the ip address to the person's home computer used in making their website?? I'm a curious soul, and it won't work. So I was wondering if you knew how to obtain that sort of information. Thanks!

author

Unfortunatly no, Because this relys on finding the server. Which is the website's server, not your home computer

author

Oh Darn. Oh well. Thanks!

author

Yeah

Its not much use just knowing the IP. I used this once to bring my brother's website for fun (I got the IP and pinged it with a java program that duplicates its self by creating batch files and in the end it pinged the website a bajjillion times.

author
thermoelectric (author)Poincare2009-02-16

Yeah.
