Find external IP

rebelscum asked 3 years ago

Hi, can anyone advise how to find another companies external IP address, if all I have is their domain name?
One company is 'borrowing' information from our website & posting it as their own.
Furthermore we appear to be banned from visiting their website.
[403 Permission Denied - You do not have permission for this request] However we can view the website fine if we go through our proxy or connect from home using the same machine.
I'd like to know how they could have found our external IP, if they are actually blocking us [I mean the external IP of our office block, not the IP of where our website is hosted].

The easiest way I know of is to go to a command prompt and type: ping and hit enter. It will give you the IP address of the server hosting the domain. From there, a whois lookup should give you a contact email address.

If they are duplicating copyrighted information without permission, you may want to contact them and warn them. If they persist, have an attorney contact them.

For example:


Pinging [] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from bytes=32 time=36ms TTL=54
Reply from bytes=32 time=37ms TTL=54
Reply from bytes=32 time=37ms TTL=54
Reply from bytes=32 time=37ms TTL=54

Ping statistics for
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 36ms, Maximum = 37ms, Average = 36ms
