I have just changed the DNS records for a website, but they have yet to propagate on the East coast. Fortunately, I can see the change via my West coast proxy.

I need to get the IP of the new server that the new records are pointing to. Is there a fast and easy way to do this via the Chrome developer console?

Looking through the console, I don't see any built-in function to do this. However, there are several Chromium extensions that do what you want.

One of them is ipvfoo (web store). It displays the hostname and corresponding IPv4/IPv6 address for all requests made when loading the current page:

Actually yes you can.

  1. Go to Developer Tools > Network.

  2. Reload your page.

  3. Select one of the URLs from the domain in question. The IP will be shown under Headers > General > Remote Address.

I get a different result when I use ping. I was testing on a parked domain, so may there was some kinda redirect that doesn't show up in browser history. – jiggunjer Dec 5 '15 at 17:39

If it doesn't have to be through the Chrome console, just ping the website in command prompt and it will give you the IP address.

My windows command prompt isn't routing through my proxy the way my browser is =( It just gives me the IP of the old server if I do that – Alex Waters Aug 2 '12 at 2:04
