I wanted to know how you know what a websites ip address is. For example what numbers would I have to type in the search bar to get this sites homepage? I know the addresses are something like 222.222.02.02. Thanks
By this sites IP address I assume you mean Geekstogo.com. There is a very cool web utility called Visual router at http://visualroute.visualware.com/ You'll have to register with them first.
After registering, log in with your email address and then enter the name of the web site your interetested in ie Geekstogo.com in this case. They then do a route trace from either Virginia or New York to geekstogo. It gives you all sorts of neat information about the web, including their IP
When you run this you get IP addresses for every intermediary link.
If you are on dialup Zone alarm will tell you about all the IP that are trying to establish connections with your computer, and it is fun to do a visual route trace on them.

(scratching head trying to figure out why you want to type numbers...it's hard enough to remember spelling!)
