What Is An IP Address?

IP address stands for Internet Protocol Address. An IP is a unique number assigned to all information technology connected devices such as printers, routers, modems, and even refrigerators. The IP address identifies and allows these devices the ability to communicate with each other on an internal or external computer network. Any device that transmits or receives internet traffic will be assigned an IP address.

There is a standard of communication which is called an Internet Protocol (IP) standard. In laymans terms it is the same as your home address. In order for you to receive snail mail, the sending party must have your correct mailing address (IP address). If any of the mailing information is incorrect, you do not receive bills, pizza coupons or your tax refund.

The same is true for all equipment on the internet. Without this specific address, information cannot be received.

IP addresses may either be assigned static or dynamic. Static IPs are reserved for an Email server/Business server or a permanent home resident. These IPs are assigned from a pool of available addresses from your Internet Service Provider. A static IP may not be available in all areas and may cost extra.

Dynamic IP address are usually assigned on a first come, first served basis. The types of IP addresses that are dynamic are often assigned to residential customers.

Public vs. Private IP likely means someone wants to remain anonymous. The best way to accomplish this is by using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) service or proxy servers.

However, in tech terms private IP addresses are those addresses that are reserved for internal network use only. Your home router has an external IP address and internal IP address. The internal IP address is likely 192.168.1.1. Your router will assign private IPs to all connected devices on your home network.

The current versions of IP addresses being assigned are IPv4 and IPv6.
