What is IP Address?
The IP address’s full name is Internet Protocol Address. IP is a group of communication on the Internet in which we connect through mailing, video streaming or website and IP Address identifies the network or device on the Internet. In today’s time, the computer cannot be connected to the Internet or any network without an IP address. It means that a code is required to connect your computer, mobile or any device to the Internet, through which your location and network is known and this code is called IP Address.

What is the type of IP address?
There are mainly 4 types of IP addresses
1. Private IP Address
2. Public IP Address
3. Static IP Address
4. Dynamic IP Address
So, now that we know who they are and what they do, tell us about them.
1. Private IP Address:
This is the address of your device which is connected to the home network and if you have different devices connected to the same ISP, then all your devices will have a different Ip Address. They aren’t directly linked to the Internet and aren’t routable either. You can find out the private IP address of your device using some techniques. window user go to your command prompt and click ipconfig command and if you are a MAC user then you enter ifconfig command in Terminal app.
2. Public IP Address: –
These are addresses that are directly connected to the Internet or can say that they are routable. We have to buy these IP addresses and for this we have to pay some money to IANA. IANA means Internet Assign Number Authority which takes care of the configuaration of everyone related to IANA. You can know your public IP address by visiting the site of supportally.com.
3. Static IP Address: –
The IP address you manually configure and connect to your device’s network is called Static IP Address. Under this, your IP address cannot be changed repeatedly and all private and public IP addresses can be static and dynamic.
4. Dynamic IP Address: –
When connecting router with internet, Dynamic IP Address is automatically configured and assigns the network and this distribution of IP Address is managed by Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) . Under this, your IP address keeps changing frequently.
To find out your IP address, go to Google’s search engine and type in My IP. A page will pop up in front of you with your device’s IP address.

What is the difference between IPV4 and IPV6?
Friends IPV4 has a 32-bit address and IPV6 has a 128-bit address. And the smallest unit of memory in a computer is a bit, and four bits make up one Nibble (i.e. 1 Nibble = 4 Bits). It has an older version of IPV4 and the latest version is IPV6.
The main reason for implementing IPV6 was that it offers a greater number of IP addresses than IPV4. Since the number of devices connected to the Internet is constantly increasing in today’s world, it’s important for everyone to have their own address. It’s also very beneficial to have an IP address.
Where IPV4 shows its address in a 32 bit numerical number which is represented by a tens sign such as 203.278.148.81 or 22.214.171.124, the addresses in IPV6 are in trillions, so they are shown in hexa decimals as in 3fge: 1800: 4545: 3: 3100
