What is my IP?

IP Address is the acronym for Internet Protocol Address. It is an identifier for a computer or device on a network TCP / IP. Networks using TCP / IP routing messages based on the target IP. Contrary to IP, specify the format of packets, also called datagrams. We recommend reading the exact definition on wikipedia.

The format of an IP address is a 32-bit numeric address written as four dot-separated numbers. Each number can be zero to 255. An example of IP is: In an isolated network, you can assign IP addresses randomly as long as each one is unique. However, connecting a private network to the Internet requires the use of registered IP addresses (called Internet addresses) to avoid duplicates.

Is my IP static or dynamic?

An IP address can be static or dynamic. A static IP will never change and it is a permanent Internet address. A dynamic IP is a temporary address that is assigned each time a computer or device accesses the Internet depending on the provider such as fastweb or telecom. The four numbers in an IP address are used in a variety of ways to identify a particular network and host on that network. Four regional regional registers – ARIN, RIPE NCC, LACNIC and APNIC – assign Internet addresses from the following three classes:

– Class A – Supports 16 million hosts on each of the 126 networks
– Class B – Supports 65,000 hosts on each of 16,000 networks
– Class C – Supports 254 hosts on each of the 2 million networks

The number of unassigned Internet addresses is running out, so a new classless schema called CIDR is gradually replacing the Class A, B, and C system and is tied to the adoption of IPv6. In IPv6, the IP address size is increased from 32 to 128 bits.
