4 ways to check the ip address of a domain

Do you want to know the IP address of your domain? There are a few different ways that you can do this, and we will discuss them in this blog post. Knowing your IP address can be helpful if you are having trouble connecting to your website or if you need to troubleshoot any issues. We will also show you how to find out who is hosting your website. So, let’s get started!

what is a domain?

A domain is a unique identifier for a website. It is the address that people type into their browser to visit your site. Every domain has at least an IP address associated with it.

The IP address is a numerical label that is assigned to each device connected to the internet. Your IP address can be public or private. A public IP address is one that anyone can find out, while a private IP address is only known to you and the people who have access to your computer.

understanding domain and multiple ip address

Your domain can also have multiple IP addresses. This is useful if you have a website that is hosted on multiple servers or if you have a website that is accessible from different parts of the world.

check ip address of a domain with nslookup command

The best way to check the IP address of your domain is to use the nslookup command. To do this, open up a command prompt and type “nslookup” followed by your domain name. This will show you all of the IP addresses associated with the domain. If there are multiple IP addresses, they will be listed on separate lines.

For example, if we wanted to nslookup Google, we would type “nslookup google.com” into the command prompt. This will show you the all IP address of google.com. The nslookup command is a tool used to query DNS servers. It can be used to find out other information about domains, such as the mx record, text record etc.

check ip address of a domain with ping command

Another way is to use the ping command to check ip address. To do this, open up a command prompt and type “ping” followed by your domain name. For example, if we wanted to ping Google, we would type “ping google.com” into the command prompt. This will show you the IP address of the domain that you pinged.

% ping google.com
PING google.com (142.251.12.100): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 142.251.12.100: icmp_seq=0 ttl=103 time=222.957 ms
64 bytes from 142.251.12.100: icmp_seq=1 ttl=103 time=122.981 ms

The ping command is used to check the connectivity between two computers. When you ping a domain name, it resolves the name into an IP address and then pings that address. If the ping is successful, you will see a series of “ack” messages. If the ping fails, you will see a message indicating that the connection was timed out.

The disadvantage of the ping command is that it can only get one ip address of your domain.

check ip address of a domain with dig command

To check the IP address of your domain in Linux, we can use the dig command. To do this, open up a command prompt and type “dig” followed by your domain name. For example, if we wanted to dig Google, we would type “dig google.com” into the command prompt. This will show you the IP address of the domain as well as some other information about the domain.

The dig command is used to check the DNS records for a domain in Linux. To do this, open up a command prompt and type “dig” followed by the domain name and the type of record that you want to query. For example, if we wanted to check the MX records for Google, we would type “dig google.com MX” into the command prompt. This will show you the MX records for the domain.

check ip address of a domain with DNS lookup tool

The last way to check the IP address of your domain is to use a DNS lookup tool. This is a web-based tool that will show you the IP address of your domain as well as some other information about the domain. To use this tool, just enter your domain name into the text box and click the “Check” button.

How to register a domain name?

To register a domain name, you will need to find a registrar that offers the domain extension that you want. Once you have found a registrar, you will need to create an account and then follow the instructions on how to register a domain name.

What is the difference between a domain name and web hosting?

The difference between a domain name and web hosting is that a domain name is the address of your website (for example, google.com) and web hosting is where your website’s files are stored.

How to change the DNS settings for my domain?

To change the DNS settings for your domain, you will need to login to your registrar’s account and then find the DNS management page. From there, you will be able to add, remove, or edit DNS records.
