3 Methods for Finding the IP Address of Your Website, Server, and Domain

All three of the following methods can help you find and get the IP address of your website, server, and domain. However, in some cases, the IP address given in your Nexcess Welcome Email may not match the IP address given by a lookup service or ping command for the domain. This can result from a pending migration, the use of proxy services like CloudFlare, or other reasons.

1. Find IP of Website, IP of Domain, and IP of Server in Your Welcome Email

If you are a Nexcess customer, we provided your IP address in the Nexcess Welcome Email you received when first enlisting our services. If you cannot locate this email, then consider one of the other options (Global Domain Name System (DNS) Checker or ping website IP.)

Nexcess customers can contact our support team by email or through your Client Portal. The Nexcess support team would be happy to find and get you the IP of the website, server, and domain.

  2. In the Record Type list, select A.
  3. Click Lookup.

3. Ping Website IP & Find IP of Domain, IP of Website, and IP of Server Using the Ping Command for the Domain

If you know how to access your command line or terminal emulator, you can use the ping command to find and get your IP address for your domain:

1. At the prompt, type ping, press the spacebar, and then type the relevant domain name or the server hostname.

2. Press Enter.
