Can I get someone’s Name and Address from their IP address?

So can I get it or not?

Yes it is technically possible to get someone’s name and address from their IP address, But it’s probably much difficult task and it’s about to involve law enforcement.
There is basically NO WAY for us common user to “track down” and pinpoint or locate a person to their house via the internet just by using the IP adress and hunting ourselves. The closest you may get is obtaining their IP address, and going to a site like “” and clicking “IP Locator” and it will give you what city they may be from, it doesn’t get any closer than that.

Publicly available information

The best you can do without help is to identify their ISP – Internet Service Provider. To actually identify the person you’ll need that ISP’s help, and that will likely take a court order. It depends on what ISP (Internet Service Provider) you are using. Some use a static IP which means your IP address is always the same and some use an dynamic IP meaning the IP changes every time you sign on to the internet. But as netstat will give you many results you need to distinguish it, so I suggest that you take the snapshot of the listings and do the analysis later or user various softwares like ethereal etc.
In order to register for an email address, the email provider usually asks for a name and other personal information. If an email is sent out through the webmailer, this name is typically added to all emails sent out. If you use an email program, the name you set up the account with in that program is included in the sent emails. This is a feature, as most people want it that way. If you prefer to remain anonymous, you would have to include a pseudonym.
Well you can get the IP address of the person you are chatting too on MSN or Yahoo, but there is a little more you will have to do. Ask the person to send a file to you or vica versa through the send file option of the IM. Then while the file is being transferred you can open the DOS Prompt and type netstat -n and get the listings of all the connections and ports opened from your system to any system or server on the net.

How to Get IP Address while Chatting

Getting IP address of someone is not a big task, But in this post i will show you how to get someone Ip address using PHP script. This trick works in Facebook and yahoo Chat. 
Just follow these simple Steps:

Step 1:

  • Open Notepad 
  • Copy this Code & save it with name Cheers4all.php 

$hostname = gethostbyaddr($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']);
$img_number = imagecreate(400,95);
$backcolor = imagecolorallocate($img_number,10,102,153);
$textcolor = imagecolorallocate($img_number,255,255,255);
$number0 = ” This is Your IP/Proxy”;
$number2 = ” Host/Proxy: $hostname”;
$number4 = ” _________________________________”;
header(“Content-type: image/png”);
$file2 = “- IP joined – IP/Proxy: $_SERVER[HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR] – Host: $hostname – ‘\n’ “;
fwrite($file, $file2);

Step 2: 

  • Make an account on any Free or premium Web-Hosting site.

Step 3: 

  • Upload Cheers4all.php to your web hosting Site

Step 4:

  • Copy Link of this uploaded file & send it to victim.

Step 5: 

  • As the Victims Click on your Link, His IP will be saved in your Web-hosting account

How to Get IP from Email Address: 

In order to get IP address from an email address, follow these simple steps

Step 1: 

  • To find the IP of an Email address, open your email client
  • In the message’s headers look for the stuff like keyboard will explores a message. 


Step 2:

  • Show Header >> View menu
  • Select option and view extended headers which shows new information.
  • Now the Received portion will be shown, and the IP address is described here.
  • Select this IP and copy it to clipboard, e.g

Step 3: 

  • We will check though this IP is accurate or not. 
  • Open the Cmd console, but we are not doing Ping test
  • Now run a whois check. Type >> whois & press enter. 

Step 4: 

  • The whois info will be sent to database
  • Results with registered  information of that IP address.
  • So we can verify that this message was sent from Facebook, Because we have every Domain registration full address. 

Step 5: 

  • By using alternative lookup will not need to use terminal or either might not be loaded on your computer. 
  • Internet lookup is like using ip-lookup, which gives you the same info as whois lookup does. 

Getting more detail:

For the most part, we have dynamic (changing) IP addresses, which the ISP distributes & keeps track-off. Some ISPs offer the option of a static (unchanging) IP address, and a lot of companies have static IP addresses as well. The WHOIS registries will often tell you the identities of those with a static IP. While law enforcement has the means to require the ISPs to reveal the identity of who a particular dynamic IP address is assigned.
One can get a judge to issue a subpoena as well. In general, you need to have a civil case filed against someone. But you can file it against a John Doe, for the purpose of finding out their actual identity. Many lawyers are well-versed in this process, but just as many I run into are not. It’s a lot easier to have a lawyer request a subpoena than for you to do it yourself, but if engaging a lawyer for the purpose, it’s a good ideato ask if they’ve done this sort of thing before.

The problem with public information:

One other way to get someone’s name and address is if the IP is for their web site server, it’s a dedicated server, and you use WhoIs to look up the registrant info for their domain. Now, given that almost every registrar offers anonymous registrations and few people surf from their web server, it’s a fringe case, but it can happen. What’s more troubling, though, are cross-site tracking cookies used by major ad networks like DoubleClick.

Can I get someone’s name and address from their IP address

A few years back there was news that DoubleClick was going to link up people’s identifiable information with their IP addresses (when they logged in at certain sites, the DoubleClick cookie would register the login), so that as people traversed different sites where DoubleClick served ads, DoubleClick could track their surfing habits and pair those up with their names.
This caused a firestorm of anger among netizens and many major sites that used DoubleClick were deluged with angry Emails. Eventually, DoubleClick dropped the plan, but it’s not impossible that some add network could quietly do it. That’s why many “spyware” killers also kill cookies from major ad networks.
