Find the IP Address of a Website Using Command Prompt

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

About: I am a high school student in Cairns, Queensland. Most of the time I am either at school, sleeping, doing stuff on my computer, making circuits of some kind or messing with 240v

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" 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.

    My home computer doesn't connect to my university student account despite the right credentials. I was able to login before, recently I couldn't. The university don't have a clue of the problem because with other networks/PC I'm able to login.

    So my question is, what could be the problem now since it was working fine before?

    OK, you enter :

    what is the ip address of perth main roads

    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.

    You need to eb a network admin and be on the 1dollarwebhosting network

    Because you're looking for the ip of a website, not your own 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..
