What is an IP Address?


Unless you’re a “techie,” you may not have more than a passing idea what an IP address is or how it works.
In simple terms, it’s a network address for your computer so the Internet knows where to send you emails, data, and pictures.

IP address actually stands for “Internet Protocol address.” This is a numerical label assigned to each device participating in a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication.

There are two primary types of IP address types used today — IPv4 and IPv6.
