Your IP Address is

What is an IP address, what types are there?

An IP address (IP address, abbreviation for Internet Protocol Address) is a network address of a node in the computer network Internet.

There are two main types:

A static IP address provides the ability to transfer data using network protocols that require the user to have a real IP address on the Internet. This is necessary, for example, to establish an encrypted VPN connection. We provide static IP on all our VPS dedicated servers.
Dynamic IP address - is assigned automatically when the device connects to the network and is used for a limited period of time, usually until the end of the connection session.
Also distinguish Ipv4 and Ipv6. pv4 - the first major version of the protocol, which is used to ensure the operation of a huge part of the Internet. According to IPv4, addresses consist of binary numbers 0 and 1. But they can be written in the form of decimal numbers, between which a dot is placed.

4.3 billion IPv4 is quite a large number, but still not enough for all devices and needs around the world. To solve this problem, IPv6 was developed. They use an address space of 128 bits. Both types of these addresses you can rent in our company.
