These numbers might seem random, but they actually represent a unique identifier of your computer, also known as an IP address.
An IP address is a series of numbers or characters that help connect your device to the Internet.
Every device has an IP address including laptops, smart phones, tablets, and even video game consoles.
There are two types of IP addresses: IPv4 and IPv6. IPv4 is the first version of IP addresses and is still widely used.
How do I find my IP address?
Sometimes when working with your hosting provider or web developer you’ll need to provide them with your IP address. Thankfully it’s easy to look up your IP address by visiting one of the many sites, like Legendary Lion’s IP Address Finder, that provides this information.
Visiting the link above you’ll be shown both your IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. Be sure to clarify with your developer which version is needed.
