1. Open the Command Prompt
Press the Windows Key and “R” to open the Run box. Now type “cmd” into the Run box and press Enter.

2. Type “Tracert” and the Website’s Address into the Command Prompt
Now type “tracert” followed by the website’s URL into the Command Prompt box and press Enter.

3. Note the IP Address Next to the Website’s URL
You will see an IP address next to the website’s URL on the line that says “Tracing route to.” That is the website’s IP address, and you can use it in the next section to find your server location.
A more simple method is searching your website URL on whatsmydns.net.
