The way we humans are named. In the same way these websites are also named. Which is known as the Domain Name System.
In the early decade of the Internet, Domain Name was invented in the year 1983 by "Paul Moukapetris". There is an IP address behind any domain (website name). This Domain Name is also known as DNS (Domain Name Server).
After updating DNS, a website is live on the Internet. An IP Address (Internet Protocol Address) is in a mathematical format (Numerical). From the IP address, a web browser gets to know about the current status of the website, on which computer server's IP address this website is currently stored.
Now you are thinking that what is the relation of IP address with the name of a website?
Actually, usually we find it easy to identify a person's name or an object by its name. In the same way, instead of remembering the IP address (18.104.22.168) of a website, we easily remember the domain name of that website. Therefore, the IP address of a website is a Human Readable Version (human readable version).
A domain looks something like this after the IP address.
Now the question comes that how do we check the current IP address of a website?
At present, many websites and online tools are available. Using which we can find out the IP address of a website. To check any website IP address, you follow some easy steps given below.
The DNS system translates IP addresses into human language. IP address is based on numbers DNS System converts numbers into human language so that while web browsing the user can do browsing or surfing by directly typing the domain name i.e. website name. After knowing what is DNS, now you should know how many types of DNS are there.
While using the internet, we send and receive all the data from one place to another. Along with this, they make the data travel. IP address is used in this whole process.
IP address is the identity of the user on the Internet. It is represented by numbers (0-255). Just as a home or office has an address, similarly a smart device that supports the Internet also has an address of its own. Which we call IP address. It is also called logical address. Means IP address is present on our smartphone, computer, laptop and other smart devices. And the full name of IP address is Internet protocol address.
There are four types of IP addresses – Public, Private, Static and Dynamic.
When many devices together create a network, then there are two types of IP addresses between them, one is the public IP address and the other is the private IP address. When an internet service provider (ISP) provides an IP address to a network router, it is called a public IP address. Now whenever a device connects to that router, it will connect its private IP address with the public IP address of the router and its IP address will be hidden. That is, only the IP address of the router will be visible on the other end.
This is the address that the network router assigns to the device that connects to itself. Each device within the network is given a different IP address by which all the devices communicate with each other. Private IP address helps to keep your device and network secure.
As the name suggests, a static IP address is a static IP address that never changes. Such as network printer, CCTV camera or any website that you are hosting from home. For example, if you install a CCTV camera at your home and connect to that camera through internet on your phone while living anywhere, then the camera uses static IP address only. Because if the IP address of the camera is not static and is changing frequently then we will not be able to connect the phone to that camera.
This means a constantly changing IP address. A dynamic IP address changes from time to time and is never the same. The commonly used IP address is dynamic, which is taken out of a pool of addresses and handed over to you. After some time it is returned to the pond and a new address is given. Dynamic IP address is more secure and private than static IP address.
There are two version of IP address, IPv4 and IPv6, about which you will know in detail further.
It is called Internet protocol version 4, it has 32 bits and 4 octets. Its range is from 0 to 255. And 4 billion IP addresses can be generated in this. Example- 192.168.10.26
There are 5 classes of IPv4 A, B, C, D and E.
It is called Internet protocol version 6, it is an advanced and upgraded version of IPv4. It consists of 128 bits and 8 octets. Its range is from 0 to 65535. And 340 trillion IP addresses can be generated in this. Example- 3FBB:1806:4545:2:100:L8FF:FE21:P75
How to see your own IP address. For this, we have given below two methods. By following which you will easily be able to know your IP address.
|Length 32 bits||Length 128 bits|
|Total octet 4||Total octet 8|
|Range 0 to 255||Range 0 to 65535|
|4 billion IP address||340 trillion ip address|
|Example- 192.168.10.26||Example- 3FBB:1806:4545:2:100:L8FF:FE21:P75|
