Public and Private IP Address

Private IP address is an IP address your devices receives when it connects to your private network like your home WiFi.

What is the use of this tool?

  • You can trace how your request reaches the destination server. Our internet is a connected network of computers and routers. When you connect to let's say YouTube your request travels from your network through multiple routers of your ISP, some different intermediate ISPs and then the YouTube server. If you have problems like slow internet specially high latency in games, in many cases the ISP routing is the issue. To detect such problems you can do a trace route to the destination server or the game or the website. And you will get IP addresses of all the routers your internet is going through. By checking the details of the IP address you will get a clear idea how your ISP is sending the data to the server and if it is inefficient.
  • If you are hosting Websites and gets sudden request spike on the server from some particular IPS, you can detect their origin location.
