How to Find Your Server’s Shared IP Address in cPanel

Building a web presence and exploring the capabilities of a hosting account is a journey. There may come a time when you’ll need the shared IP address of your Shared Hosting server. But what is a shared IP address and how can you find it? This article will quickly explain what is an IP address, a shared IP address, and how to find yours in your cPanel

In This Article:

What Is An IP Address?

The first step is understanding IP addresses. Internet Protocol, or IP, is the numerical address assigned to every domain created on the web. An example of an IP address is 123.345.567.789. Domain names now take the place of the long string of numbers that make up an IP address. Imagine typing in an IP address every time you wanted to visit a website!

What Is A Shared IP Address?

A shared IP address is shared between many domains on one server. Instead of your domain having one IP address, everyone shares the IP address on the server. A shared IP address is enough for most users because common configurations don’t need a dedicated IP address.

Viewing Your Shared IP Address

You can find the below information by logging into cPanel. Use the image below as a guide to navigate your cPanel and find your shared IP address. Of note, the IP address listed in the Server Information page is the Shared IP Address of the server you are on.

  1. Log into cPanel.
  2. Click on Server information
    On the right side pane, click on the link labeled Server Information.
  3. Server info page
    Scroll down to find the Shared IP Address.

Please see our education channel for more information about cPanel. If you need further help please feel free to ask a question on our Customer Community Support Center.

  5. I changed my layout to x3 and the shared ip address is not listed on cpanel under expand stats. Any help as to why that might be?

    1. Hello Bryan,

      That is quite unusual. If you have a custom server setup, you may not have a shared IP.

      If you are hosted on our servers, I recommend contacting Live Support so they can test your specific account.

      Thank you,

  6. Hello,
     I am having an issue. My website shows to be hosted on a domain in cpanel, but when I try to connect to fillezilla to the domain name, it shows a different ip address. Also, when I ping the url, it displays a different ip address than the one from the domain address.
    What could be the problem? The ip address it shows is not from my server. 
    Thank you in advance. 

    1. Hello Cristina,

      Thank you for contacting us. I looked at your domain’s Nameservers, and they are pointed to Cloudflare.

      In this case I recommend using your “server name” instead of your domain, since it it routed through a 3rd party site. You can view your server name in your cPanel stats.

      Thank you,

    1. Hello Bibek,

      Thank you for contacting us. I checked your cPanel, and it is not showing because you changed the default theme.

      You can still view your shared IP address by clicking the drop-down box below Switch Theme, and select x3.

      Thank you,

    1. Hello Darwin,

      Sorry for the problem that you’re having. Unfortunately, your question is very vague. “Why is my website not pulling sometimes?” Are you referring to not being able to get into your website? Do you have another problem? This article is about finding your Shared IP address. If you’re referring to another issue, please post a question in the appropriate area or as a comment under the article associated with your problem.

      Kindest regards,
      Arnel C.
