Going to your original post, about the IP address showing for the computerforums.org site, it is a DNS (Domain Name System). The IP address you listed, is the IP address for computerforums.org forum home page. Everything on the Internet is based on IP addresses. It would be really hard for us to remember what IP address went to what site, wouldn't it? Someone had the great idea of DNS servers, which their only function is to translate www.computerforums.org
, something we can remember, into the IP address of 18.104.22.168, something computers understand. I'm not sure if you've noticed, but when you go into a command prompt, and type in ping www.google.com
, your get replys back from 22.214.171.124, which is Google's IP address for that domain. Hope this makes since
If you're having problems getting to www addresses, but no problems getting to IP addresses, then your computer has a DNS issue, and we can troubleshoot that, if that is what is going on.
Sorry- back to the original post. You could be getting that because the DNS hasn't propogated through the network (Internet)- This happens when you change servers, and should resolve itself within 72 hours. The computerforums.org link probably has a forwarding to that IP, which is the new IP address for this site. Hope that makes since.
