Check your website IP addresses fast
There are lots of ways to get your website IP addresses. You can use a command prompt (CMD) to conduct a ping or a traceroute, download an app to do it, or contact your hosting company and ask. But why? In the time you do any of that, you could have gotten your website IP address right here for free.
Uptrends free tool gets you both your IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. You don’t need a separate tool to check both. Plug in your domain, such as uptrends.com, and click Start Test. In a flash, you’ll have all of your website IP addresses.
Is my website’s IP address working for everyone?
The system that handles your domain’s IP resolution is an extensive distributed system with servers worldwide. If your DNS (Domain Name System) record is corrupted on one DNS server, users directed to that server can’t get to your website, or worse, get sent to a malicious site.
Why should I care about my website’s IP address?
We don’t typically think about our website’s IP address; instead, we think about our domain or URL, such as www.uptrends.com. After all, website IP addresses change, and sometimes a site will have many, but it’s your website’s IP address that allows users to find your website or service when they type in your domain.
An entire infrastructure sits behind your domain that does nothing but takes URLs and converts them to web server IP addresses, and if anything happens to the record that maps your website’s URL to it’s IP (or IPs), you’re dead in the water. Verifying that the DNS gives out the right website IP address is really important.
Website IP address security
Your DNS records with your website IP addresses are vulnerable to hackers. DNS hijacking and poisoning can have a huge impact on your business. Regular IP address checks can help you protect your business and get you back online faster in the event of an attack.
Can your users find you?
The first part of any journey is knowing where you’re going. Your website IP address provides the destination so that networking protocols can kick in and map a route to your site. Make sure your address is always accurate.
IPv4 or IPv6?
Your site may have an IPv4 address and an IPv6 address or one but not the other. If your website has both, you need to monitor both. One may work while the other fails, and it may take a while to notice otherwise.
Share your IPs the easy way
