When we travel the Internet, the IP address is like a house number, we type in the domain name and then the DNS resolves it into an IP address so that we can access the content of the corresponding website.
Sometimes we need to know where the IP is when we buy a foreign cloud server, so we need to check where the IP address belongs to.
For example, if we buy a US VPS, we can find the US IP Query tool to find out if the IP address is from the US.
By entering the IP address in the input box, we can search for the specific IP location. The IP address search tool clearly shows the country, region and city to which the IP belongs, as well as the name of the ISP and organisation.
You can also view the specific ASN IP address segment based on the ASN information displayed as a result of the IP query, as well as some information about the merchant for this IP address segment.
The IP address segment shown in the ASN is generally a physical address.
If we need to look up the IP address segment of the US, we can find the list of US ASNs and click on the specific ASN to see the IP address segment assigned under the ASN, which will generally be the US IP address as well.
This article explains how to query a specific IP address through the IP address lookup tool, and how to query the US IP address segment through the ASN list as well.
