Almost all Internet Service Providers (ISPs) offer low-cost static IP options. Getting a fixed address at a relatively cheap price on the Internet may seem like an attractive option, but in this article, we’re going to look at the dangers and you’ll probably regret buying a fixed IP by reading this.
The following is a static IP address, not an address that you manually set on your network card on any local network…
What is an IP address and how does it work?
If you want to send a letter to your friend, you need his address. Without an address, the post office will definitely not be able to send letters. The Internet works the same way. All the work that is done in the online space, including checking emails, watching videos, etc., requires the exchange of data between the device you are using and the hosting server. Each participant in this process also needs their own address.
For example, suppose you want to open a page in a browser. Your computer must communicate with the server through its address, and the server must send the information related to that page to the computer’s address. Requests and responses are similar to those of the Post Office are transmitted in packets containing sender and recipient addresses.
These addresses are actually IP addresses that are written as 4 numbers from 0 to 255 and separated by a dot. For example, 184.108.40.206 is an IP address (in IP version 4). This combination addressing method creates more than 4 billion addresses, which is much less than the number of devices connected to the Internet around the world.
