What IP address is my current web page using to communicate with me?
My understanding of how web pages work is that the web page name (URL) is translated to an IP address. So, can I find out what that address is for a web page which I have open? The reason for my interest is that when I type www.streamhunter.eu my Firefox browser comes back with Batmanstream.com or something like that. I want to know if this is the real streamhunter or a pirated web page. So, what IP address is Batmanstream using? I don't know. Oh, I am using Ubuntu 15.10 and Firefox 43.04.
You can open the Network Monitor to see the remote address of each internet resource.Read this answer in context 👍 1

A DNS server is probably redirecting the original domain to that domain. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_Name_System
Or can be done by the original domain name owner. http://help.dnsmadeeasy.com/managed-dns/records/http-redirection-record/
