Domain to IP
About Domains to IP
We use domain names to find our favorite websites; We also bookmark them in our search browser. We can even write them down and store them in case something goes wrong with our machine. But why do we need to know the IP address of a domain name? We will need this information if we want to know the details of the domain name. What is an IP address? We need to know the answer to this question before we discuss the IP address of a domain.
There is a database that contains records of all websites on the Internet. The IP address is what identifies one domain name from another. Each domain is assigned a unique IP address. IP (Internet Protocol) is a unique addressing system used to identify all machines using the Internet. When you connect to the Internet through any device; mobile phones, tablets, laptops, computers, etc. You are identified by an IP address. Without a unique addressing system, operating and managing the Internet would be virtually impossible. Imagine if you lived in an area with no house number, street number or name. It would be impossible to know where a person lives.
An IP address consists of four digits. Each of them contains one to three digits
A single dot '.' Separate each set of numbers. Each of the four numbers can be between 0 and 255. The IP address can look like 28,178,123,456. This seemingly innocuous set of numbers is the key to allowing users to send and receive data from other websites. It is this set of numbers that ensures that we visit the correct website.
The common set of IP addresses was first installed in 1983 and is known as IPV4 and the address explained is rapidly running out. To manage domains in the future, the IPV6 address was launched and both versions were used.
Static or Dynamic IP Address
There are two types of IP addresses assigned, called static and dynamic. A static address never changes. Web hosting providers purchase and use a dynamic set of addresses. This means that when a user assigned a dynamic address disconnects from the Internet, that address will be assigned to another user.
Static IP addresses reveal information such as the continent, country, and region where the computer is located. However, the IP address may not reveal the correct domain name information. The reason for this is that a company in South Asia may have a static IP address on a web hosting provider in the US. The IP address will provide this information when performing an IP lookup. Large organizations prefer to have static IP addresses, and some government agencies also have static IP addresses.
Dynamic IP addresses are a group of interchangeable IP addresses. All Internet Service Providers have a pool of addresses and assign IP addresses when users connect to the Internet. Sharing a dynamic IP address is cheaper and more secure than a static IP address. Hackers find it easier to hack a static IP address because the domain's address never changes. When hackers try to attack a dynamic address, they may encounter another domain using the IP address.
When traveling, you can bring a laptop, but not an IP address. If you walk into a coffee shop that offers Wi-Fi and connect to the Internet from there, you will use the IP address assigned to the cafe to check your email and perform other Internet activities .
How to find a domain name to an IP address
There are several ways to find your or a website's IP address. You can use the 'trace' or 'ping' command to find the IP address. But knowing the IP address of a website won't give you any additional information. If you want detailed information about the IP address of a domain name, go to seosmalltools.com on your search browser and look for the "Domain to IP" icon or copy/paste smallseotools.com/domain-to -ip into your browser's search address bar. The Domain to IP tool appears. Enter the domain name for which you want an IP address and press "Submit". The application will display the domain name, IP address, country and ISP.
In addition to showing the IP address, it also tells you what country the IP address is located in and the name of the web hosting provider that hosts the domain name you searched for.
This information can be very helpful to find out who the real service provider for your domain name is. You may have purchased a web hosting provider in your region or country. However, an Internet service provider can be a reseller to another Internet web hosting provider. You may be a business based in Singapore, but your website is probably hosted in Australia.
The majority of web hosting providers are located in the United States. The reason is that they can offer cheap hosting and their level of service is among the best in the world. In addition, their configuration is very large and very well managed.
Knowing who is the Internet Service Provider for any domain on the Internet is very useful information. Not only do you know the exact IP address of your domain, but you also know where the domain is hosted from. If you think a competitor's site gets a better response than yours. Also, you find out why they are using a great web hosting provider, you can get this information by doing a domain name search with IP using smallseotools.com. You can then decide if you want to get rid of your current web hosting provider and switch to another.
