Why is website address different than my computer's?

Post by rhwriter13 » Mon Feb 28, 2011 4:36 am

I just did a reverse IP check on Rankchecker for my own websites. It says they all belong to this address: 174.122.106.60 but my computers IP begins with 97. Why would this be? I am trying not to panic here. HostGator is my host but their website does not show up as the one listed above. :?: :?:

You website will have a different IP address from your computer because your website is with a hosting company, and not running on your personal computer.
