IP address lookup
Enter an IP address in the box below to let our IP lookup tool do an extensive and detailed IP address lookup and try to get its geolocation (latitude and longitude), WHOIS, DNS and reverse IP details.
An IP address refers to the address that uniquely numbers a NIC, which is short for Network Interface
Controller or Card, or as it is often referred to as an ethernet card, from a host connected to the
internet according to the TCP/IP-model. The "I" and "P" stand for Internet Protocol.
Every computer or device connected to a network has been given a unique number, through which they are visible to other devices and computers on that same network. The best comparison is when you compare this to the use of telephone numbers.
To make it possible for computers to talk to each other, they have to be identified by their own number. These are called IP addresses.
An IP-address on the internet is usually linked to a company. Because of this, it is possible to trace back the source of the action you want to investigate. For home connections, the IP address is linked to the ISP, which is the company responsible for delivering the internet connection and giving out the unique number for the WAN.
In most cases, contributions and changes on the internet are not truly anonymous. The person or system behind it is typically traceable. If it is not possible by a set of tools, like on this website, it is possible to recover this by going through your local justice department after filing a complaint.
