Bing Lets You Find Other Domains On an IP
As WebSonic notes in the forum, Microsoft’s search engine Bing has an interesting operator which can tell you different domains hosted on a given IP. First, get the IP of a domain, e.g. by entering example.com
into a tool like host2ip
. Copy the IP into Bing
and precede it with “ip:”, as in ip:188.8.131.52
. The search will now show other domains than example.com hosted on the server.

Update: Lokkju comments, “MSN/Live.com has supported this for years – it is just a carry over from live.com search.” [Thanks Lokkju!]
