  • Click on the "start menu", then on "run". Type "command" in the box. Once the command console has appeared, type "Ping WEBSITE", where website is the name of the site, minus the "http://", and there is a space between the "ping" and the "website" So for example, if you want to get amazon.com's IP, type "ping www.amazon.com". This will give you the IP for the site you ping'd. Amazons for example is 149.161.64.100. Have fun! Shaggy
  • The best way (at least in my opinion) is to type the following at the command prompt: nslookup domain ...where domain is something like www.amazon.com If applicable, this may show you all IP addresses associated with a domain. Re Shaggy's answer: The IP address you associated with amazon.com is an Indiana University one. The correct one is in the range of 207.171.160.0 - 207.171.191.255 EDIT: My apologies Shaggy, the Answerbag site automatically puts http:// in front of a domain name. When doing ping or nslookup, remove the http://
  • Thanks for the answers. But if I type PING followed by a domain NAME, I get an unknown host message (that is why I asked my question, really). It only works if I type PING nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn (i.e., PING followed by the number). I use Windows 98 SE, BTW.
  • nslookup E.g. nslookup www.answerbag.com
