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

Picture of Find the IP address
Open command prompt and type in "tracert" then type in the website for example "tracert" 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

Picture of 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.

Is it possible to see where a website was CREATED instead of getting the IP in California? Or is it as simple as "Look at one of the other results"?

Like, let us say they lived in Ontario or something but used a website creator from California. How do you get the other IP?

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 Another way is by using Domain Host Search in which gives the IP address of the website, Service Provider, Country etc..

is there anyway to ping more than 1 ip at a same time??

just like the last person and and 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. let me know if it works for you.

gave you 5 stars, nice could you put some examples of what we can do with the IP address?

You could remotely connect to someones computer...

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.

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.
nslookup to chack dns server ip.
no host ip see.

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

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.
then could u tell me how to get access to the router or the networks proxy server of a particular website?
thermoelectric (author)  rsscarface1385 years ago
Try searching for it.
jibatsu5 years ago is i typed it into my url and it came to google
thermoelectric (author)  jibatsu5 years ago
Hmmm, Don't really know why that is happenning
fun ible either way, my dad has a website so i tried that, it came to a small animated picture, turns out it was another website he is making and that he was going to show it to me but i found it before he could tel me.
thermoelectric (author)  jibatsu5 years ago
Cool, Glad you liked it.
I liked your instructable. But I was wondering, can you be more specific when typing in the website? Like instead of just,, could you do like,, 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!
thermoelectric (author)  Jjolleygal995 years ago
Unfortunatly no, Because this relys on finding the server. Which is the website's server, not your home computer
Oh Darn. Oh well. Thanks!
