Technical Terms: IP Address

Every device connected to the Internet has an IP address. Your computer, phone, tablet and anything else you have connected is either using a unique IP address or one shared by your household, company or building. Web servers and services also have IP addresses and domain names are automatically translated to IP addresses in order for you to access sites. You IP address can be used to trace you, but it isn't easy.

    Around the 2min mark you talk about IPv6 and that it’s 6 numbers instead of 4; however, your screen-shot still shows 256(4) instead of 256(6). Was a little confused.
    BTW – Brilliant vids, huge fan. I watch and ‘like’ all of them on YouTube.
