Enter a URL
When running a website, you might wish to find out where your website is truly based. For example, you might own the website. You do not, though, host it locally. You might be using a hosting company to put the website online and store the files on their end. With that in mind, you might wish to find out where the servers are being stored. To do that, you need to use a Domain into IP tool.
This simple to use tool allows you to quickly find out what the IP (Internet Protocol) address is of your domain. While you might expect that IP address to mimic your own, it will not. Instead, it will show the country of the IP address, as well as the Internet Service Provider. This is very useful information as it allows you to know where and who is providing the services for a website. We recommend you use this as it can make it much easier for you to know who and where to start enquiries should any issues arise.
Simply enter the URL you wish to have checked, and click the ‘Submit’ button, and our Domain into IP tool will provide you with the details shortly.
We often think of our domain name as the address of our website. Just as The Marketing Helpline is built at https://themarketinghelpline.com, though, we also have an IP address. Every website does. Every website has both a URL and its own unique IP address identifier. Finding that out can be very important for many reasons.
You can access a website simply by typing in the IP address as opposed to the URL. This is a very important part of a website, though, and you should always look to know what your IP address is. Your IP address is the identifier that is used to separate your website from ours and every other website in the world. It is also an identifier that is given to every single device that is connected to the website at any given time.
You will be identified by your IP address, making it important for you to know. For example, you might be geographically blocked from entering certain content due to your IP address showing where you come from. Certain content is aimed only at certain people or countries, so IP addresses can help to ensure nobody can access content who should not have access.
An IP address for your domain (or anything else) will be made up with a set of four numbers, each separated by a single dot. Each of the four blocks of numbers will contain up to three number, and the numbers can range from 0 to 255. Today, we use what is known as IPv6 to ensure that even more IP addresses can be given out.
With the mass number of devices today, though, knowing what the IP address is of any device or website domain, can be very important.
You get both Static and Dynamic IP addresses. Understanding the difference is very important. A static IP address provides rough information about the geographic location of the user, though it is very rarely if ever truly exact. Static addresses are often used by major companies and government systems for various reasons.
However, many people use a dynamic IP address. An Internet Service Provider has its own pool of IP addresses that it can use. Once you connect to the web, you are given your own dynamic IP address to use. Unlike a static IP address, dynamic IP addresses change ownership making it harder to be used for any form of fraud. They might find that the owner of said IP address changes from the beginning of any hack attempt to the end.
So, it is unlikely that your website will retain the same IP address indefinitely.
The main reason why you might wish to use our tool is to find out what the service provider is of a website. It might be the website you wish to contact for any reason or to contact the provider. You might even wish to find out about your own website for informational purposes. You will find out where the domain is hosted from, and who it is being hosted with. That can be invaluable information for numerous purposes.
You might find that a website performs excellently, and you wish to use the same provider. You might find that you have an issue with a website and need to take it up with the provider. You might even just wish to double-check the IP address of your own website, and where it might be based at this moment in time.
