An IP, also called IP ADDRESS, is the internet-equivalent of your website's telephone number.
What is an IP?
An IP consists of a series of four groups numbers, each up to 3 digits in length, separated by periods.
Example: the IP address for this website is 22.214.171.124 and this website can be located by entering http://126.96.36.199/ in the address field of your web browser.
The company which hosts your website provides your site's IP address.
Because names are more user-friendly than numbers, most websites are addressed by their DOMAIN (e.g. RDNAssociates.com).
