Let's explore your IP address! It's your key to the internet - join us in understanding this subject.
An IP Address, or as we refer in our other blogpost, the "Internet Protocol Address", is a unique identifier given to every device connected to a network It's akin to your home's address - it tells other devices where your device is located on the Internet or a local network.
Just as you need a mailing address to receive a letter, your computer needs an IP address to communicate with other
devices and services on the Internet.
There are two types of IP addresses: IPv4 and IPv6. IPv4, the most common form, consists of four sets of numbers
separated by periods, such as 192.0.2.0. However, due to the growing number of Internet devices, we are running out of
these addresses. Therefore, IPv6 was introduced, which has a much larger address space. An IPv6 address looks like this:
Finding your 'my IP' address is fairly simple. On a Windows machine, you can open the Command Prompt and type
'ipconfig'. The result will display a series of addresses, but the one labeled 'IPv4 Address' is your IP address. On a Mac, you can find this information in the 'Network' section of your 'System Preferences'. If you're interested to know more about networks, you might want to read our blogpost on "Local Area Network (LAN)".
For mobile devices, the procedure differs from one operating system to another. On an Android device, it can typically
be found under 'About Phone' or 'About Tablet'. For iOS devices, you'll find your IP address under your Wi-Fi network's
Most IP addresses are dynamic, meaning they change every time you connect to the Internet or restart your device. This
process is usually managed by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). On the other hand, static IP addresses remain the
same and are typically used for hosting servers or providing reliable remote access.
Knowing your IP address can be helpful for troubleshooting network issues, setting up a home network, or for network security
purposes. If you're operating a website, knowing your visitors' IP addresses can help you determine where your traffic
is coming from.
Remember, while your IP address provides information about your network, it doesn't provide specific details about you
personally. However, it's always a good practice to protect your IP address, especially when using public networks.
