Your IP address: 54.147.196.159
127.0.0.0/8 refers to self (loopback IP addresses) - see RFC 5735

Notes:
Computers connected to a network are assigned a unique number known as Internet Protocol (IP) Address.
IP (version 4) addresses consist of four numbers in the range 0-255 separated by periods (i.e. 127.0.0.1).
A computer may have either a permanent (static) IP address, or one that is dynamically assigned/leased to it.

Most IP addresses can be mapped to host/domain names (i.e. www.speedguide.net).
Resolution between domain names and IP addresses is handled by Domain Name Servers (DNS).
