What is an IP address?
IP comes from Internet Protocol. An IP address is the address of a device on the Internet. Each device which has an internet connection has an IP address as well. There are two versions of IP addresses at the moment. That is IPv4 and IPv6. They are two because the IPv4 network is almost exhausted and there aren’t enough IP addresses to meet the demand of new devices being connected to the internet on daily basis. That’s why IPv6 was released which contains significantly more IP addresses.
