What is an IP Address ?
If you don’t know what is an IP address then it is not a surprising thing because most of the computer users don’t know this, even 90% of the computer users don’t know how an IP address looks like. Just like you have the address of your house from where you can send or receive several things; in the same manner, IP does the work.
IP address stands for Internet Protocol address which is nothing but the address (in numeric form) of your device from where you can send or receive some data or emails. Each device that connects to the internet has its own unique IP address.
