There are a few ways to find the IP address that has been assigned to your domain. This article will cover 4 methods that you can use to find this information quickly.

To utilize the steps outlined in this article, you'll need to ensure that your computer has access to the internet and that you know the name of the domain that you'd like to look up.

View the Server Information from within cPanel

If you have a cPanel account, just log in and click on the server information link on the right side of the page as shown below:

The next page will show you your account's Dedicated or Shared IP Address as well as some other useful information about your servers such as your Hosting Package, Server Name, cPanel Version, Apache Version, PHP Version, MySQL Version, Architecture, Operating System, Path to Sendmail, Path to Perl, Perl Version and Kernel Version.

Ping the Domain

Typically you can find the IP address for a domain by pinging the domain. This can be done from your local PC. However, the steps may vary depending on the OS that you're using. To simplify this process, we can use an online Ping tool, such as http://ping.eu/ping/. Once you have opened the previous link, please enter the domain name that you'd like to check into the textbox and click Go. You should begin to see the output of the ping tool, which should include the IP address for the domain.

IntoDNS

Another great way to obtain a domain's IP address is by using https://intodns.com/. IntoDNS is a great site that will show you DNS-related information for most domains. To find the IP address, enter the domain name in question into the textbox and click Report. Once the report has been generated, you can scroll to the bottom and find the WWW A Record column. The column to the right of the WWW A Record column should contain the IP address for the domain.

DNSWatch

Like IntoDNS, DNSWatch will allow you to obtain a domain's IP by resolving its A record. You need to enter the domain into the Hostname or IP textbox and click Resolve. You should then be greeted with A record found: followed by the IP address of the domain.
