How to find server IP address of any website

Looking to get the IP address of a website? Read up!

Just in case you're wondering what the hell I'm talking about; a web server is a computer program that allocates site web pages as they are being requested. When we enter a web address into an internet browser, the browser transmits a request off into the internet requesting to view the web page.

The web server responds to that request, and delivers the contents of the web page back to the user.

This is made possible because every device that connects to the internet has a unique number assigned to it, named the Internet Protocol address(IP). Now our objective here is to find the unique IP address assigned to any Website.

There are several ways to achieve this, none of these involves any hacking skills. I'll be showing you 3 different methods, namely;

  2. Via Windows XP/Vista/7
