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.
- Log into cPanel.
- On the right side pane, click on the link labeled Server Information.
- 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.

Thoughts on “How to Find Your Server’s Shared IP Address in cPanel”
Hi, last night I was trying to change the temp. url into the real one and probably did some mistake. Now I’m not able to enter my WP interface and I’m getting a 403 error or a blank screen… Please help me!!!
I recommend trying one of the other methods for updating your site URL such as the wp-config file or database.

I don’t have a shared IP adress on my Cpanel, Only Dedicated IP Adress, Is that normal ?
Yes, that is normal based on the hosting plan you have, or if you purchased an SSL.
The ~username thing is what I was looking for. Thanks!
I’ve the following code, which I am using for my android app.
Previously the hostname was written clearly. Now I am using cPanel and can’t figure out what value should be givn to $host variable.
Typically you can use your domain as the hostname. But you can view your server’s hostname in AMP, in the Account Technical Details section.
How do I access my site using just the IP. I don’t want to change the bameservers until I have migrated WordPress.
I suggest using a Host File modification to test your WordPress site.
Otherwise, you will have to change the actual Site URL to your shared ip with a /~username at the end. For example:
i have my cpanel password ,i used to open cpanel using www.DOMAIN_NAME.com/cpanel
But my friend access my cpanel using diffrent password using some ip address, he used to open this account with his password and i have my diffrent password.
is it possible to access like this.
please guide me as soon as possible
Yes, you can use your IP address and add /cpanel at the end. For example: 22.214.171.124/cpanel
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?
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.
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. x-photo.ro
What could be the problem? The ip address it shows is not from my server.
Thank you in advance.
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.
Why is there no ip address shown in my cpanel??
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.
why is my website is not pulling sometimes?do you have any idea about it?
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.
Thanks to share this.
you can also connect with Dedicated IP Address.
