You can run nslookup this will work in both dos (windows command prompt) and linux terminal enviroments.

Lookup google.com

nslookup google.com

Ping isn't always responded to, depending on firewall rules. If it is a domain name, use nslookup to give you the ip address.


You can click Start menu in Windows and find the Run: and type in 'cmd' or 'cmd.exe' and it will open a DOS terminal. Then type the following:

ping somewebsite.com

where somewebsite.com is the site you're referencing. Another option is visit this site and enter the website address and it will tell you the IP address:

Hope that helps.

  • P.S. if you are on a Mac, open the Terminal app and type ping command above. – Mike S. Jul 14 '12 at 5:11
