Here is information on internet domains:

The number you show is an IP address---it may or may not have a domain name associated with it.

If you give us some context for your question, there may be a better answer

In particular, that's part of the RFC1918 (not publically routable) IP address space, which is mostly used on local LANs behind some sort of network address translation .

What more information do you want?
