The software that a person has to download to trace the IP’s is Visual IP Trace. This software is used to confirm the customer’s location with the IP Address. It has to find out whether the system is been hacked by someone and has to stop the hacking process. It also traces many IP domains at the same time. This is done by the IP Address look-up from the Domain Name Server (DNS) which is in turn used to find out the information of the system being traced.
Every computer will be assigned with an IP Address using which it is possible to browse through other sites. The assigning of IP Addresses is done dynamically for individual PC’s. So each time when you connect to internet, your system will be assigned different IP Addresses. Static IP’s are assigned to permanent sites. ISP’s job is to keep a record of log entries so that when it is reported abuse, ISP’s can trace the user using the date, day and time.
To trace the IP of a website, you can use visualware toolbar which is present in the Windows Taskbar. In order to add this, you need to right click pointing the cursor on Windows Taskbar and then select Toolbars -> Visualware. Next step is to select Trace an IP by right clicking on the icon.
