What is an IP Address with its Types?


An IP address is a string of numbers separated by periods. IP addresses are expressed as a set of four numbers — an example address might be 192.158. 1.38. Each number in the set can range from 0 to 255. So, the full IP addressing range goes from 0.0.

There are 4 types of IP Addresses-

      1. Public IP-
        A public IP address is an Internet Protocol address, encrypted by various servers/devices. That’s when you connect these devices with your internet connection.
      2. Private IP-Everything that connects to your Internet network has a private IP. This includes computers, smartphones, and tablets but also any Bluetooth-enabled devices such as speakers, printers, or smart TVs.
      3. Static IP-Static IP addresses are incompatible, given once, and remain the same over the years. This type of IP also helps you get more information about the device.
      4. Dynamic IP- A dynamic IP address changes from time to time and is not always the same. If you have a live cable or DSL service, you may have a strong IP. Internet Service Providers provide customers with dynamic IP addresses because they are too expensive.

Among them, public and private addresses are derived from their local network location, which should be used within the network while public IP is used offline.
