What is IP Address and How can we Change it

What is an IP - Address and what is the purpose of IP - Address ?? This question is asked by me several times so today I thought of explaining this concept in simple words.

What is an ip address ???

Whenever we use internet on our computer, a unique IP- address is assigned to our device alongwith a port number . This assigned IP address is just a unique number called Internet Protocol (IP). IP addresses usually consists of four numbers separated by dots which normally called as 'dotted-quad' and it looks something like that
These numbers are usually assigned to internet service providers according to region in which they are operating , that's why an IP address can easily be used to identify the region,country or even the city from which a computer is connecting to the Internet. In fact an IP Address is mostly used to check the location of he user and so if you are using your original IP Address then its not much Difficult to track you .So first we discuss about how can we check our IP Address . Its not a much Difficult task to check your IP Address .

How Can I Check My IP Address ?

  • Click on Start Button in the bottom left side corner.
  • Now Click on Run.
  • Type in cmd and hit Enter.
  • An MS-DOS Prompt Screen will be opened.
  • In MS-DOS , just write this command as it is ipconfig and you will get some data.
  • Search there and find IP ADDRESS and the number written in front of that is your IP Address.
Now the thing is how we can change our IP Address and remain save in internet world . There are many software which can do this task quite easily.But in this tutorial we just check that how can we change our IP Address :
