An IP address is the numerical address assigned to each computer on the internet so that its location and activities can be distinguished from those of other computers.

IP address generally refers to the IPv4 addresses, a 32 bit value represented as 4 blocks of 8 bit values separated by periods (dot-decimal notation). This will look like ##.##.##.## with each number ranging from 0 through 255.
