Your IP address is something you probably rarely think about, but it’s of vital importance.
An IP address (Internet Protocol address) is an identifier assigned to each computer and other devices, connected to a TCP/IP network that is used to locate and identify the node in communications with other nodes on the network. The IP address is a binary number that uniquely identifies computers and other devices on a TCP/IP network.
Your IP Address Is:
IP Version: IPv4
Address: San Jose, California, United States
City: San Jose
Country: United States
Continent: America (NA)
Your latitude is 37.3874 and longitude -121.9024.
An internet protocol is represented by the computer networking model and usually is a communication protocol used on the web worldwide. Known also as TCP/IP protocols because TCP is related to Transmission Control Protocol and IP to Internet Protocol. These two protocols were also the first protocols created.
The TCP and the IP model together with other protocols are maintained by Internet Engineering Task Force knew also as IETF.
IP Address Standards
Two IP addressing standards are in use today. The IPv4 standard is most familiar to people and supported everywhere on the Internet, but the newer IPv6 standard is gradually replacing it. IPv4 addresses consist of four bytes (32 bits), while IPv6 addresses are 16 bytes (128 bits) long.
