Hello vijay.gupta, Websites only change their IP addresses if they change host, or the host changes to a different data centre. It's possible that the data centre has changed ISP's, but it is highly unlikely that they would have a dynamic IP. Any reason why you're asking? Cheers,

Ofcourse, big websites often have multiple IP addresses and the DNS servers hand them out in a "round robin" style to distribute load and improve reliability and performance. So, you may receive a different IP address depending on when you attempt to access the website.
