What is an IP address?



Every machine in a network has a unique identifying number, called its IP Address. An IP address is a group of four bytes (or 32 bits) each of which can be a number from 0 to 255.

IP addresses are two types:
Static IP Address :- static IP addresses are those types of IP address that never change once they are assigned to a device on a network. No doubt this type of addressing is cost effective but could have a high security risk. Static IP addresses are mostly used by wed email and gaming servers who don’t care much about hiding their locations.

Dynamic IP address :- A Dynamic IP address changes each time the device logs into a network this kind of IP address is very tough to trace and are used by companies and business firms.
