I want to find out where my hosting server is located. Is there a tool or way to check and tell me exactly where my server is? I am just curious if my hosting provider provided exactly what they offered for the server location.

If you can provide the domain name of your website I can check it for you :)

It's not really easy, because you can use your server IP to find the country of the IP, but for example I have some servers in France running with UK or Czech IPs.

I afraid that I can not. I have many domains, I can not send you all. I only want to know the way to check.

I know my real IP address, I can use it to know where my server is located?

@Mujkanovic If you go to whois.sc and type your ip address, you will be ablate see the AS number of the network (web host). Then, searching by AS, you;d be able to find the physical location of the server, where you host your websites. It is even easier, if you as the web host ;)

Use traceroute. The names of the routers through which packets flow from your [or any] host to the host with the given IP address might hint at the geographical path which the packets follow, and at the final destination's physical location.

Yes, you can check your IP location with the website : https://www.whatismyip.com/ip-whois-lookup/
I've used this myself https://www.iplocation.net works for me but like virtubox said it gets tricky some times.

There are different results when checking with these tools

whois.sc is redirecting to whois.domaintools.com and I don't know it showed their company location or my server location there in IP Location

What is AS that you are talking about?

Your server is located in a data center on earth, so if your on a shared server it is located on the reseller account at cpanel, the reseller account is on a vps, which is on a dedicated server, the dedicated server is located on earth, no out of space data centers yet, so if you use http://www.monitis.com/traceroute/ you will find your server here on earth.
