The first byte of an IP address identifies which of the three network classes that address belongs to. The ranges for that first byte are as follows:
Class A: 1 to 126 (1.h.h.h to 126.h.h.h)
Class B: 128 to 191 (128.n.h.h to 191.n.h.h)
Class C: 192 to 223 (192.n.n.h to 223.n.n.h)
Where n represents the network address and h represents the host address.
They range from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199 are called Multicast addresses and are used to send packets to a group of hosts or routers.
Addresses in the range from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 (220.127.116.11/24) are reserved Multicast addresses for the local subnet and are not forwarded by IP routers regardless of the Time to Live (TTL) in the IP header.
The answer to your question is NO. That address range is reserved for Class D, and is only used for preallocated for use with IP Multicast applications. Click here to learn more about IP address class breakdowns.
