IP Address

IP Address or Internet Protocol Address is a numerical label that is given to every device that uses the Internet Protocol for communication. The IP address has two main uses: to identify the host or the network interface and to give the address of the location of the device. An IP address is a 32-bit number (IPv4) or 128-bit (IPv6). The numbers for the IP Address are binary, so people can read them.

An example for IPv4 is 172.16.254.1, while an example for IPv6 is 2001:db8:0:1234:0:567:8:1.
