What is an IP address?

An IP address, also known as an 'IP number' or 'IP', is a code that identifies a particular computer on the internet. It is made up of numbers with three dots separating them. Every computer, whether it is a web server or the computer you're using right now, requires an IP address/number to connect to the internet. Your internet service provider (ISP) will assign you either a static IP address (which is always the same) or a dynamic IP address (which changes every time you log on).
