IP address identification
IP address is a unique number assigned to one’s computer on the Internet. There are two types of IP addresses: dynamic (the one that changes every time someone goes online) and static (so it remains the same). It consists of 4 blocks of figures from 0 to 255. In order to make one’s IP static it’s necessary to utilize Internet provider’s additional services, since many providers allow this feature.
This service permits you to identify your computer IP address, as well as additional information on your browser and operational system. Knowing this data is a widespread defense mechanism to escape intruders. And, in addition, one’s IP info may be used when working with protected websites that require special access which is requested by the website’s administrator. It is also required to know your IP address to employ an anonymizer or proxy-services for the purpose of hiding your presence on the Net.
