Q: How to find the ipaddress of a website or a domain?

Each website on the internet must have a unique IP Address. And they usually registered with a domain name like "foo.com", etc. You see that "domain name" of that website on the address bar while you browsing through a web browser. You can easily find the ip address of a website with simple commands.


Note: Make sure you are connected to internet directly(without proxies)

In windows Operating systems
Go to "Start"  -> "Run" -> and type "cmd"

C:\>nslookup facebook.com

C:\>ping google.com

In Linux Operating systems
Go to terminal 
Usage: #host <hostname>
[root@Fedora ~]# host facebook.com

facebook.com has address 69.171.224.11
facebook.com has address 69.171.229.11
facebook.com has address 66.220.149.11
facebook.com mail is handled by 10 smtpin.mx.facebook.com.

The ping command will also work in linux distributions
Eg: # ping foo.com
