Hi there @avanishchauhan08,

There are a few ways to do that:

  • Use the ping command to ping your hostname:
  1. ping
  • If you are already on the server run the ip or the ifconfig commands:
  1. ifconfig
  2. ip addr

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby

If you’re using the ip utility from the (Debian/Ubuntu) iproute2 package, you can see all configured IP addresses on your system using:

ip address show

This can be shortened to:

ip a

You are likely to only be interested in your main network device: on DO VMs, this has the public-facing IP address. To get info for just this network adapter:

ip a show dev eth0

Some very old installs may still use the old (now deprecated) ifconfig command (from the nettools package). This is not the preferred way of handling IP addresses in Linux but here’s the command in case needed:

ifconfig eth0

i got my server name but i can not find my static server ip address
