IP address of webserver

How can I find server's IP address?
From console I can use ping, for example:

C:\RobotP\cgi-bin>ping www.google.com

Pinging www.google.com [209.85.129.147] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 209.85.129.147: bytes=32 time=30ms TTL=244
Reply from 209.85.129.147: bytes=32 time=30ms TTL=244
...

So I know that www.google.com has 209.85.129.147 IP address.
But how can I find it directly from Python script?
Thanks for help

py> import socket
py> help(socket.gethostbyname)
Help on built-in function gethostbyname in module _socket:

gethostbyname(...)
gethostbyname(host) -> address

Return the IP address (a string of the form '255.255.255.255') for a
host.

py> socket.gethostbyname("www.google.com")
'209.85.165.147'
