What is a IP address?
An IP address (Internet Protocol Address) is a logical address of a network adapter. The IP address is unique and identifies computers on a network.
An IP address can be private, for use on a LAN, or public, for use on the Internet or other WAN. IP addresses can be determined statically (assigned to a computer by a system administrator) or dynamically (assigned by another device on the network on demand).
IP addresses consist of four bytes (with 32 bits). Each byte of an IP address is known as an octet and can take any value between 0 and 255. There are various rules for ensuring IP addresses are valid. IP address example: 184.108.40.206
All IP addresses are managed by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority.
Are you aware that many websites and most hackers use IP addresses to monitor your personal business and that your home address and other personal information about you can be retrieved once your IP address is known? IP-Adress.com shows you all of the information that is currently linked to your IP address.
If your IP address isn’t hidden, virtually anyone with Internet access can track you directly to your home. Everyone can see this information—including hackers!
What is a static IP address?
A static IP address is fixed and does not change. They are used to identify semi-permanent devices with constant IP addresses. A static IP address is used by servers.
The static IP addresses can be configured directly on the device or as part of a central DHCP configuration which associates the device's MAC address with a static address.
A static IP address is a number that is assigned to a computer by an Internet service provider (ISP) to be its permanent address on the Internet.
It would be simple if every computer that connects to the Internet could have its own static IP number, but when the Internet was first conceived, the architects didn't foresee the need for an unlimited number of IP addresses. Consequently, there are not enough IP numbers to go around.
A Static IP address is where a computer uses the same address every time a user logs on to a network, such as the Internet. With a static IP address, a computer's identity can be easily identified by others, and users can easily connect with it. That way, for example, a website, email server, or other type of server connection can be hosted.
Many people want to have a static IP address.
What is a dynamic IP address?
A dynamic IP Address is an IP address that is assigned to a computer every time it connects to the internet.
Unlike a static IP address that will be the same every time the user logs on, a dynamic IP address is different every time.
Your ISP is holding ranges of dynamic IPs. Everytime you connect to the internet you will get another one.
With dynamic IP addresses you may need to check your ip very often.
