What is an IP Address? It's a numerical label assigned to each device participating in a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication. It serves two principal functions: host or network interface identification and location addressing. In other words, it indicates where your computer is and how the internet can find it.
It is important for you to know your IP address for many reasons. You may need it for tech support, online gaming, remote desktop applications, and detecting proxies.
The Reverse IP Domain Checker tool will check your IP address and, if you are using shared hosting services, it will display the domains and links of other websites that share your IP address. If there are problematic websites that might affect your own due to sharing an IP address, an icon will display to identify the type of risk.
How this tool works: Simply input the URL of your website, and then click 'Submit.' Immediately, you will receive a list of the other sites that share your IP address, and a link to each one so you can investigate them if you so wish.
A shared hosting service is when a service provider serves pages for multiple Web sites, each having its own Internet domain name, from a single Web server. This means that they will have the same IP address but different domains. Most Web hosting companies provide shared hosting.
Shared hosting is a less expensive way for businesses to create a Web presence. However, it is usually not sufficient for Web sites with high traffic, as it will slow everything down.
This may cause search engines to penalize you. Sites like these need a dedicated Web server, either provided by a Web hosting service or maintained in-house. But you may not have that option. So this tool will tell you what other domains you share an IP address with, and if they are dangerous or crowd your IP address too much.
In addition, some specific types of websites are intentionally blocked by search engines, and this can result in accidental blocking of other websites that share the same server or IP address.
A high page rank and optimization for front page placement in search engine results are important to your website, so it’s best to use dedicated web hosting if you can. If you can't, use this tool to monitor the other sites you are sharing with.
