March 02, 2019

This post shows the steps and code required to get the IP of a website. It expects a valid website URL in order to query the same to get the IP.

The basic code to get the IP of a website is as shown below.

// Stores the site URL
String siteUrl = "https://www.google.com";

// Convert the String to URL
URL url = new URL( siteUrl );

// Create address object
InetAddress ip = InetAddress.getByName( url.getHost() );

// Get the IP
System.out.println( ip.getHostAddress() );

Below mentioned is the fully implemented and tested code to show the IP of given website URL.

package networking;

import java.net.InetAddress;
import java.net.MalformedURLException;
import java.net.URL;
import java.net.UnknownHostException;

public class ShowIp {

public static void main( String args[] ) {

// Stores the site URL
String siteUrl = "https://www.google.com";

ShowIp ipUtil = new ShowIp();
InetAddress ip = ipUtil.getWebsiteIp( siteUrl );

// Print the address
if( null != ip ) {

System.out.println( "The IP Address of given site URL - " + siteUrl + " is: " + ip.getHostAddress() );
}
// Show error
else {

System.out.println( "IP not found for given URL" );
}
}

/**
* Get and return the IP address using the given Web URL.
*/
public InetAddress getWebsiteIp( String siteUrl ) {

InetAddress ip = null;

try {

// Convert the String to URL
URL url = new URL( siteUrl );

// Create address object
ip = InetAddress.getByName( url.getHost() );
}
// URL not formatted
catch( MalformedURLException e ) {

System.out.println( "Invalid URL found" );
}
// Host not found
catch( UnknownHostException e ) {

System.out.println( "Host not found" );
}

// Returns address object
return ip;
}
