You can ping the domain name.  From the command prompt, type ping www.experts-exchange.com (for example).  You will get a reply from 64.156.132.140, this is the IP address for that domain.

One more thing to add - some domains block ping attempts.  If you encounter this, go to www.network-tools.com.  Select 'Trace', type the domain name into the field below (should have your IP address in there by default) and click submit.

You will get a response like this:
TraceRoute to 64.156.132.140 (www.experts-exchange.com)

You must buy it from an ISP.

crissand is right if you're looking for how to get an IP address for your own server rather than just look one up for an existing domain name, honestjohn.  You have to sign up with an internet service provider, who will assign you an IP address.  Domain names are not inherently associated with a specific domain name.  The process of associating your domain name with your IP address is spelled out in your other post (www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Windows_Server_2003/Q_21078249.html).  As mentioned there, if you want to run your own web server, you should try to get a static (unchanging) IP address.
