I was just wondering if an IP is like a telephone number and for example "www.google.com" is the name that corresponds to that specific IP, and we no longer use IP, (well we use but i think you'll get what i mean) What can i do to travel in the internet using the IP instead of the link throught the Dos prompt shell window.

In short, yes as long as it is set up that way. Other ip addresses are dynamic, where the domain will have to be "repointed" to the ip address as it changes (such as DynDNS or other service).

IP addresses and domain names are "linked" via DNS. These articles might help clear this up for you:
http://www.howstuffworks.com/dns.htm
bleepingcomputer.com tutorial: The Domain Name System

You can find out an ip address to a specific url by using the PING command at the command line, eg
ping www.google.com
After you hit return, the address will be followed by the URL in brackets. The ip adress I got back was 66.102.9.147. So if you put that in a browser address bar as http://66.102.9.147/ it will work as well.

What can i do to travel in the internet using the IP instead of the link throught the Dos prompt shell window

Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean by that. Can you explain a little more, or give another example?

Tank you for the info that you gave me, sometimes i just don't know what to search for, but i hope that's about to change :flowers:.

I agree with you, I wasn't very clear on the last section of my topic. What i want to ask is more or less if it is possible to enter i site throught the Dos prompt shell window. Browsers are used to do this job, but before browser have been invented, how could we connect to a server?

A couple of ways to connect to a server with the command console is telnet and ftp. But these are not intended to interpret and display the html of a web page because for that you need to use the http protocol, which is what browsers are designed for.

Is there anything specific you need to accomplish?
