Taken at face value, they are just URL's so will not have IP addresses in them. IP addresses are resolved after the URL is activated.

You need to activate the URL in a browser window, and from there, you could do a lookup on the name to get an IP address.  ... Thinkpads_User

Instead of manually sort them out, is that possible to run a VB script in excel file and get answer? Can anyone supply me a VB script for this ?

A URL is a locator to *find* the IP address. So it would have to a fairly complete "whois" lookup VB script to do such a thing. ... Thinkpads_User

I adapted the code from here:

and it works perfectly.  I have to give full credit to the author from that site.
