How to find a websites IP address
Finding the numerical IP address of a website is pretty easy, just launch your Terminal and type the following command:
You’ll then see something like this printed back at you:
$ nslookup google.com
The number underneath google.com is the IP address for Google. Note that some larger websites will have multiple IP responses.
There’s any number of reasons why you’d want a websites numerical address rather than their resolved domain, from troubleshooting DNS problems, to determining domain neighbors, to configuring network settings.
