    My Better WP Secrurity plugin asks for my IP address so I can white list it. Have tried my website address-does not work. I don't know which part of any data this is-please help.

    So, you don't know what your IP is? Am i right?

    Your Public IP Adress is displayed in
    Security > Dashboard

    Scroll down to "System Information"

    Public IP-Adress: 172.16.254.1 (for example!)

    If you can't find it, use IP Adress Lookup

    Note that this isn't particularly useful if your internet service provider assigns dynamic IP addresses, meaning your public IP may change every time you connect to the internet.
