Question: What Is the IP Address of Facebook?
People sometimes want to know Facebook's IP address when they are unable to connect to the site by its domain name (www.facebook.com).
Answer: Like many popular Web sites, Facebook utilizes multiple Internet servers to handle incoming requests to its Web site www.facebook.com. The following IP address ranges belong to Facebook:
  • 66.220.144.0 - 66.220.159.255
  • 69.63.176.0 - 69.63.191.255
  • 204.15.20.0 - 204.15.23.255

Reaching Facebook via IP Address

Facebook.com utilizes some but not all of the addresses in these ranges. Below are the most common active IP addresses for Facebook.com:
  • 69.63.176.13
  • 69.63.181.15
  • 69.63.184.142
  • 69.63.187.17
  • 69.63.187.18
  • 69.63.187.19
  • 69.63.181.11
  • 69.63.181.12
Just as you can visit the Facebook home page by entering http://www.facebook.com/ into your browser, you can also enter http:// followed by any of the above addresses - for example
http://69.63.176.13/

Acceptable Use of Facebook IP Address

If you cannot reach Facebook using http://www.facebook.com/, your Internet provider may be blocking access to the site. Using an IP address based URL might bypass such restrictions. Even if it succeeds, however, such a workaround may violate your host network's acceptable use policy (AUP). Check your AUP and/or contact your local network administrator to ensure visiting Facebook is allowed.
