IP Address

IP stands for Internet Protocol – and the IP address is a unique identifying address given to every computer connected to the internet. It takes the form of four sets of numbers with each set separated by a dot. Each set of numbers is between 0 and 255.

Computers accessing the internet via an ISP may be allocated a temporary IP address by their ISP for that internet visit – however a website will require a fixed IP address. Many broadband providers include a free IP address with some of their broadband packages.
