An IP address which is the abbreviation for Internet Protocol address basically serves the purpose of uniquely identifying any device (maybe a laptop, a computer, a router, etc.) on a network. We can understand this with an analogy to our Aadhar cards. Just like Aadhar card serves the purpose of uniquely identifying an individual, an IP address serves the purpose of uniquely determining a device on the network.
An IP address is usually represented, as a set 4 numbers each of which is separated by a ‘.’, where each part serves the purpose of identifying a part of the network.
To know your machine’s IP address, google “my IP address” and then you’ll obtain your IP address. This IP address is how your machine is uniquely identified on the network of which you’re a part of. ISP (Internet Service Provider) usually assigns the IP Address.
