what is my ip?

Sometimes you need to know what your external IP (internet protocol) address is. Whether just to know or a part of maintenance. Well, I need it sometimes to check whether I’m being blocked by any website or not. I made a list of how to check our external IP address, check it out!

1. Google Search

The simplest way to check your IP is by doing a Google Search with this keywords : “what is my IP”.

Google will give you your IP address like this: Your public IP address is 202.93.37.81.

Since most of the latest browser available has the ability to do search operation using search bar, or even searching right from the address bar, it will be so easy for you.

2. Web Service

If you don’t have much time to type the phrase “what is my IP”, you might want to bookmark one of the websites below and put it on your bookmark toolbar, so all you have to do is to click the bookmark and wait till the page loaded.

  • www.whatismyip.com
  • www.whatismyipaddress.com
  • www.whatsmyip.org
  • www.ip-address.org

and lot more websites out there with same functionality. What a waste -__-"

3. PHP code

Or if you’re sick of useless page contents of those websites and only need to know your IP address real quick, you may code your own PHP script and put it on your website. Here’s the code:

<?
if (!empty($_SERVER[‘HTTP_CLIENT_IP’]))   //check ip from share internet
    {
      $ip=$_SERVER[‘HTTP_CLIENT_IP’];
    }
    elseif (!empty($_SERVER[‘HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR’]))   //to check ip is pass from proxy
    {
      $ip=$_SERVER[‘HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR’];
    }
    else
    {
      $ip=$_SERVER[‘REMOTE_ADDR’];
    }
echo $ip;
?>

Copy the code above, paste it on notepad, and then save it as a .php file (eg. myip.php) and upload it to your web server, so you can access it like this: www.yourwebsite.com/myip.php .

One example of the live site that will give you only your IP address is : http://www.whatismyip.org.
