Static IP Address
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is an electronic serial number that takes the form of four numbers separated by dots; an example would be 10.50.50.50. Every machine connected to the Internet—computer or any other Web-enabled device—has a unique IP address. Wherever you browse online, send an e-mail or instant message, or download a file, your IP address functions like a vehicle license plate or a finger print to enforce accountability and traceability. IP addresses are used by routers to forward messages from one computer to another over the Internet.
