        Ummm.... so what happens if the creator/s of the website use a lot of different IP addresses?

          A website will have its own unique IP address that doesn't change.

          66.211.109.13 posted by paradigmsearch is correct.

            Not entirely accurate.

            Many larger websites spread the load around with "round-robin" DNS.  Sites like Akamai provide load sharing services like that, so a big site may not have the same address when you visit it tomorrow,

            See http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/ … kamai.html for more.

        How to do that?

          You'd put http:// followed by the IP address in your browser address bar.

      My best guess:

      Type the IP address in the address bar that you want to make your home page.

      Go there. Hopefully it doesn’t auto change to the domain name.

      Do the “Make Home Page” function.

        You do realize that an IP address is just a string of numbers looking something like this:

        163.391.185.189

          Yep, and you can enter them in the address bar. And they will work.

            Mine simply brings up information concerning my internet connection...

              Mine simply refused to load. If I added "IP" in the address bar, I got a list of search results.

    What exactly do you mean?

    An IP address is just a string of numbers to identify your computer. Like the numbers on your letter box.

    Interesting first post. Welcome to HubPages!

    Yes. Very much unclear the query

    PS Do not do that with the IP addresses you see accompanying the comments. Depending on the ISP, those could be permanent/fixed/unique user addresses. Try accessing those and you could get yourself pegged as a hacker. smile

    Try this one:

    66.211.109.13

    Success can depend on what browser you are using, i.e : what it auto-tacks on to the front and back of it.

    Tell me where it goes and I will know that you have succeeded. smile

      Good job, Paradigmsearch! I looked it up, and it belongs to HubPages. I tested it, and it brought me to this site. As far as bookmarking, the URL - not the IP - was what showed up in the address bar once the page loaded.
