% whois -h whois.arin.net NET-ICANN
ICANN
c/o Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (NET-ICANN)
   4676 Admiralty Way, Suite 330
   Marina del Rey, CA 90292-6695
   US

   Netname: ICANN
   Netblock: 192.0.32.0 - 192.0.47.255
[snip]

% host www.icann.org
www.icann.org has address 192.0.34.65

192.0.0.0/24 !=  192.0.32.0/20
