What is IP Address ??


Internet Protocol Address or IP address is a unique address of every device wich is connected to the network such as Computers, Printers, Smartphones to send data to a particular device on the network and they use the Internet Protocol for communication which are there.


now, let's know what is Internet Protocol(IP) ??


This is a method or protocol, through which data is sent from one device to another on the Internet.
Every device which is connected to the network must have a unique IP Address. Without your device's unique address, you can't communicate with other devices, other users and other computers on the Internet. IP address are made of Binary values and routing all the data over the Internet.

IP Address Standards :

There are 2 standard IP addresses used on any network;

1) IP version 4 (IPv4):

This is the 4th version of Internet Protocol (IP) which is used to identify network devices. IPv4 are 32 bits long and support 4,294,967,296 addresses (through many of them are reserved for specified purposes, such as 10.0.0.0 and 127.0.0.0)
192.768.0.1 this is a common example of an IPv4 address. the most easily identifiable IP ranges are 192.168.0.0 - 198.168.0.255, because these addresses we use at home or office.


2) IP version 6 (IPv6):

A new version of Internet Protocol version 6 was developed because of the worsening IPv4 addressing potential future due to the popular Internet growth.
Internet Protocol version 6 is 128 bits long and it's supports so many addresses which is equal to, 340.282.366.920.938.000.000.000.000.000.000.000 these are many addresses and they are more than enough to continue Internet opration for a very long time.

What is Public and Private IP Addresses??

Private IP Addresses:

When many computers or devices connect to the cable or to the wireless, they create private network. Within this network, a unique IP address is assigned to share files and resources to each device. The IP address of all the devices in this network is called private address.

Public IP Addresses:

The public IP address is that, which ISP(Internet Service Provider) gives. This gives your home network an identify in the outside world and this IP address is unique across the Internet.

public IP address can be Static or Dynamic.
Static public IP address does not change and it is primarily used to access a service on the Internet such as an IP camera, FTP, email server, or to take remote access to the computer or used to web hosting. it has to be bought from ISP.
And the Dynamic IP address receives the IP address available and changes every time when connected to the Internet. The maximum Internet user has a Dynamic IP address for his computer which is disconnected when disconnect from the Internet and gets a new IP address when reconnected.
