Finding the public IP address from a hosted account


#1

Hello,

I am trying to figure out what the IP address of the server I am using is, in order to authenticate it with a 3rd party vendor I am using, which is requiring us to provide an IP address.

Thanks!

Hey @gulli1,

If you’re just trying to find the IP that a URL points to, you can use the command line. I believe the commands are the same for windows, mac, and most linux: ping -a example.com

For windows, hit the start button and search cmd. Linux users normally have a favorite terminal emulator, but terminal or xterm will work. I think it’s called terminal on mac.

Once you’re in the terminal type ping -a google.com, replacing google.com with your URL. The computer will resolve this to an IP address.You can hit ctrl+c to stop pinging once the IP address appears.
