Would 40 hops reach from California to Florida?

An unknown IP address was found for the first time tonight, Friday October 21st at 9pm. I traced it and it had 40 hops. Most of the others had only one. Could the 40 hops reach from California to Florida and can I find out who owns it?

Thank you so much.

Thank you for contacting us regarding an unknown IP. 40 hops is a lot, but it is possible depending on the specific IP and the route it takes. You can perform a WHOIS lookup on an IP address to determine who it is owned by. Here is a link to our full guide on How to Lookup WHOIS Information.

Thank you,
