Very Simple PHP Question

Posted on 2004-08-06
Last Modified: 2006-11-17
When I go to it displays my IP: . It also displays this: . IPCHICKEN refers to that as the "name address." I've seen many sites do the same thing and display the "name adress."

MY QUESTION IS: How do u display the "name address" in PHP.

BTW, I already know how to display the IP: $_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"]. Could u tell me how to display the name adress in this format, if it is possible.

You need to feed the gethostbyaddr() function the IP address eg:

$hostname = gethostbyaddr($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']);
echo $hostname;
