On this page, you can find all the information we have gathered on public IP address
18.104.22.168, which is owned by Level 3 Communications. We provide these details
free of charge and for personal investigation purposes. We have included facts like network details such
as DNS and hostname, but also detailed location information. We answer questions like what is
22.214.171.124? Who is behind it and what is its reputation?
Another great feature you have access to, is that when there is a web server installed and running
on the hardware using this IP, we can detect which primary website is served. We do this by checking
its HTTP (80) or HTTPS (443) ports. And if it is a shared IP, we can even help you identify the
other websites. This is especially helpful when you are doing research and question the intents
of a website, making sure it’s safe.
Most of the respectable and professional internet businesses take their
online presence very seriously and serve their websites from dedicated environments. Being directly served
from a shared server with lots of websites could mean it’s still a small business or even a shady
one, especially if the other websites look exactly the same, only with a different domain name.
There are however exceptions when they are using a service like a CDN or reverse proxy, which are
popular with developers. They use these services to increase the speed of a website, thus reducing
the time it takes to load it, but also to limit the impact when the website is targeted for a
DDoS attack. The companies offering these services tend to have an extreme amount of network capacity
to automatically fend off an attack. It is also very useful to improve the scalability of a website.
As you were searching for 126.96.36.199, we can already let you know
that we've found no websites
running from it.
We also see a lot of our visitors searching for login details for the admin interface based on
the searched IP-addresses. Unfortunately, we do not provide these for public interfaces, as this
could be considered unethical. Our website does however provide default factory credentials for
routers, but only through the private interface.

Public vs. Private IP addresses
As you might have noticed, we are talking a lot about public and private IP-addresses, but what
are they, and what is the difference between them?
You have searched for 188.8.131.52, which is a public IP address and most likely related to your
own router as its external IP. It is a combination of four numbers, called octets, which
are separated by dots. And because your router acts as a bridge between your local network and the
internet, it also has another IP called a private IP address.
The public IP address is assigned by your ISP, and is pretty much outside of your control.
The private IP address is built up in the same manner, also consisting out of four numbers
separated by dots, but cannot be the same as the ones used for a public address. It is used to connect
your computer to the internal network and whenever you visit a website or send out an e-mail,
your router will receive it through your private network and send the information out though your
Another difference is that public IP addresses given out by providers are likely to change as
every router in the world needs a unique public IP address, basically just like people and their
home address, so ISPs tend to use dynamic IP addresses to make sure they don’t need more than
necessary because of the finite amount of available addresses. They do this on a per-request
basis. When you disconnect your router from the internet, the ip address is revoked and given
to the next user that connects.
It is also common to have a static public IP address, which doesn’t change regularly like a
dynamic one does. Nowadays, this is almost strictly prohibited to servers that serve websites and
e-mail and are based in datacenters around the world and are often referred to as ‘the cloud’.
This makes sense, as these servers need to be available 24/7.
The biggest downside of a public IP address is that it is outside-facing and can reveal details
like a rough estimate of the users' location, as you can also see on this website. Using a VPN,
like we offer in our ‘Hide my IP’ service, can give you some peace of mind if you don’t like the idea
of being ‘out in the open’ when browsing the internet. Because it is another layer on top of your
network, it hides your public IP address from the internet as it gives you a randomized address.
It’s even possible to completely obscure your physical location.
These days you can buy routers which have this option built-in, but the most common way of
doing this, is by installing an app on your computer or phone.
