Have you wondered how computers talk over internet, how we can chat and how we can surf our sites. Think what why I request for www.goolge.com and I get www.google.com only, why not www.whatsq.com instead 🙂 . Lets understand what is IP, Internet Protocol.
An IP address is an exclusive number of your device on internet which online devices use to identify and communicate with each other through computer networks. This process can best be compared to how we receive mail to our home address. An IP address would be most similar to a mailing address, while the network would be compared to the town you live in. Just like our home addresses, information cannot be sent or received by devices without a specific address.
