TPG's IP address has changed

Level 11

Can someone explain why TPG's IP address has changed. 

In the commands below, www.tpg.com.au has "cloudflare" in the name and a "104" address. In the past it has been a "203" address.

IP address 203.26.27.38 still resolves as www.tpg.com.au.

Ping tpg.com.au (no www.) resolves to the original address.

My computer has 192.168.1.1 (VR1600) as DNS address. The VR1600 has 203.12.160.35 and .36 as the two DNS addresses.

What's going on?

Hi @david64,

 

I'd like to confirm your concern with changing of IP address. A website can have multiple IP addresses if it’s hosted at multiple locations and same is the case with TPG’s website.

 

Regards,
