IP Address Tools
Need help tracking, tracing, or identifying an IP address? We’ve developed free tools to help you out.
Get details about the physical location of an IP address with this tool, including the country, state, and city it’s in. You’ll also get the IP host’s name, the area code for that region, and any known services running on the IP address. Getting more information about an IP address is useful for many situations, including checking to see what’s out there about your own IP address.
Track down and trace an email that you received to see where it came from. Simply copy the email header and paste it into our analyzer and you’ll find the IP address of the sender. Identifying the IP address of an email sender can be helpful if you’ve received spam, so you know to either report or block the IP address of the sender.
Determine the “path” packets take from one IP address to another. Learn the hostname, IP address, and response time to a ping. Knowing the IP traceroute is useful because it helps you find delays and failures in a network pathway.
Find out if your IP address is listed on an anti-spam database. Enter your IP address and you’ll see if it appears in any of the blacklist databases we’ve compiled. Why would you want to know if your IP address is blacklisted? If your IP address is blocked, it could prevent you from accessing a website, joining a forum, signing up for a game, or adding yourself to a chat.
Want to know the hostname of an IP address? Use our IP to Hostname Lookup tool, also known as Reverse DNS Lookup. A hostname is what a device is called on a network; it uniquely and absolutely names a computer.
If you have the hostname of a device and want to know its IP address, use our hostname to IP address lookup tool.
Are you using a proxy server and worried about your information being exposed? Use our tool to see if we can detect a proxy server. Why would you need to use a proxy server? It redirects your web browsing activity, allowing you to mask your real IP address.
Anonymously search across multiple data breaches to see if your email address has been exposed and what actions you should take as a result.
Check the speed of your dialup, broadband (cable, dsl, or wireless), or corporate internet connection. Tests upload, download, ping latency, and jitter.
