What is an IP address?

All devices (Computers, phones, game consoles, internet of things, etc) connected to the Internet have a specific/unique address. Internet Protocol Address (IP address) is a virtual address assigned to all devices that connect to the Internet network. They are part of network traffic and the protocol that defines the working rules of the internet.

To simulate how an IP address is used, when you type example.com into your browser, the computer does not understand the domain name and translates this domain name to its numeric IP address. In this way, It reaches the correct server and downloads the website to your browser.

There are two types of IP addresses. One is IPv4 (Version 4) and the other is IPv6 (Version 6), such as 172.16.240.1 in IPv4 and 2002:ac4:0:0:0:123:4567:1 in IPv6. IPv6 was developed due to the internet growing so fast, IPv4 numbers were running out.

What are the differences between IPv4 and IPv6?

IP address depends on the Internet Protocol version it’s using. Most internet service providers still use version 4 that is the older Internet Protocol version instead of version 6. Version 6 will be used more in the future. IPv6 will fully be implemented when the adaptation time of the new technology is finished and the volume of IPv4 numbers decreases gradually.

Version 4 is based on four numbers from 0 to 255, and is separated by dots. For example, 192.168.3.1. Version 6 based on eight blocks of numbers. Each block is written as four hexadecimal digits and separated by colons. For example, 2000:AC33:0000:0010:0:FFFF:1000:1AAC.

What are private and public IP addresses?

Public addresses which are used on the Internet and Private addresses that aren't. Everyone who is online has a public IP address. To use the internet, all connected devices must have a public IP address. Private address most effective supposed to work inside the local network. Each Internet connection is unique and a public IP can never be duplicated. Within a private network, private IP cannot be duplicated. But another person does have a private IP for one of their devices and can be the same private IP address you have for a device.

Your home router assigns a private IP address to everything on your home network. So each device or computer in your home network has a unique private IP address so it can communicate with all the others, but nothing outside of the local network can establish a connection.

Reserved private IPv4 network ranges:

  • Class A: Used for big networks, such as those of international companies. Range 10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255
  • Class B: Used by medium-sized networks, such as a university or similar size. Range 172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255
  • Class C: Personal and home networks like small networks. Range 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255

When can I use a static or dynamic IP address?

Most users use dynamic IP addresses which are assigned by internet service providers for home networks, where you want it to be as easy as possible for new network devices to be added or removed.

Static IP addresses are being used when external devices or websites need to remember your IP address. They are expensive and you can get them with the request only. Static IP addresses are best for hosting, web servers, FTP, etc.
