As you all know IP Address plays a very important role in communication with the trusted parties on the internet. If you know someones IP Address, then you can use them to created nuisance activities, which is illegal. But most of us work on dynamic IP Addresses by using our broadband connections and IT mangers use static IP Address in companies. Also there are times when we use our homes to configure our servers and use the IP Addresses provided by ISP (Internet Service providers).
This is where credibility of IP Address is needed. If your IP Address is dirty or in the spam list then your server will not be able to communicate with the trusted parties in the outer world. So to check you IP Address, there are 2 ways:
- To check your IP Address, go to mxtoolbox and enter your IP Address
- Click on Blacklist Check, to check you IP address
2. GOOGLE SEARCH
- Using your IP Address on the machine, search on google.
- If Google ask for captcha, then your IP Address is dirty
How to remove IP Address from BlackList

- Now some resources blacklist the IP Address for certain time and some resources till the time you request them or fill their form.
- You will have to fill in the form to remove from the blacklist for individual resources LISTED above.
