What is an IP address?
An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a unique numerical label assigned to each device connected to a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication. It serves two main functions: identifying the host or network interface and providing the location of the host in the network.
There are two types of IP addresses: IPv4 and IPv6. IPv4 addresses are 32-bit numbers typically represented in a dotted decimal notation (e.g., 192.168.1.1), while IPv6 addresses are 128-bit numbers represented in hexadecimal notation (e.g., 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334).
IP addresses can be either static or dynamic. A static IP address is a permanent address assigned to a device, while a dynamic IP address is assigned temporarily and can change over time.
IP addresses are important for routing data packets to their destination on a network and for identifying devices for security and management purposes.

If you’re attempting to check from your smartphone or computer, you could either use this website or one of the “What’s my IP” websites. You can also just type “My IP” on Google, and it’ll show your IP address. However, remember that Google will always show your IPv6 if your network supports both IPv4 and IPv6. To check your IPv4, you will have to use an IP lookup website.
How to change my IP address?
There are several ways to change your IP address, here are a few options:
Restarting your router: One of the easiest ways to change your IP address is by restarting your router. This will cause your router to obtain a new IP address from your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
Using a VPN: A Virtual Private Network (VPN) can be used to change your IP address. By connecting to a VPN server, you will be assigned a new IP address from the server's location. This can be useful for accessing content that is blocked in your region or for increasing online privacy.
Contacting your ISP: In some cases, you may be able to contact your ISP and request a new IP address. This is not always possible, and it depends on the policies of your ISP.
Change IP at the operating system level: If you are using a computer, you can release and renew the IP address assigned by the DHCP server on your router by going to the Command prompt (Windows) or Terminal(Mac/Linux) and typing "ipconfig /release" for Windows and "sudo ipconfig set en0 DHCP" for Mac/Linux.
It's important to note that changing your IP address does not increase your online privacy or security, but it can be useful for accessing content that is blocked in your region or for bypassing IP bans imposed by websites.
