What is an IP
An IP Address (Internet Protocol
Address) is the unique identification address of the Computer,
connected to the Internet. It is something like the addresses
given to our home and offices to uniquely identify them, so that they
can be referred by the address.
Who assign the IP
The IP Address is assigned by the ISP
(Interne Service Provider), who provides the internet services to you.
There are 2 type of IP Addresses, one is Dedicated IP Address and
another is Dynamic IP Address. A Dedicated IP Address always remain
same and does not change when you disconnect and reconnect your
Computer to the Internet. The Dynamic IP Address is different Every
time you connect to the Internet. But in both of the cases, Dynamic IP
and Dedicated IP, they are unique across the world, until you are
connected to internet.
How we identify
your IP Address:
When you open any website on the
internet, your browser sends the request to the web server, where the
website is hosted, the request does contain the IP Address of your
machine, the request is originating from. When you open
www.myipy.com in your browser, our
program code analyse your request and find out your IP address from
the request. The same IP Address is displayed to you.
