An Invalid IP Address?

Post by GoldDustWoman »

This address continues to come up as a frequent visitor in analytics but the IP address comes back as 'invalid' when I use the site to search for a location.

Can anyone tell me what this means? Is it a bot? Can I tell the location of this person with this 'address'?

IP: 2600:8801:8700

Thank you in advance!

That's only part of an IPv6 address. The analytics tools that you are looking at may be cutting off part the IP address.

At least part of the 2600:8801:8700 block of IP addresses belong to Cox Communications.
