Your public IP address is shown above. It is the address that uniquely identifies your device or network on the Internet. Additionally, geographical information about the location of the IP address is provided below. This is known as GeoIP, a form of geolocation. To retrieve GeoIP data on other IPs, enter it in the textbox provided and click Look Up. It is important to keep in mind that GeoIP is not as accurate as other methods of geolocation, such as GPS.
IP - An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a unique identifier used in network communication. Network devices, such as a computer, a network printers and a router, all have a unique IP within their own network to enable you to print your document to your network, connect to a website, or play online games. An IP address is analogous to a phone number.
These special addresses are IPs that are reserved for network testing and troubleshooting and are not assigned to devices.
The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) has reserved the following three blocks of IP address space for private networks. These private IP addresses are typically used in local networks and cannot be accessed directly from a public network such as the Internet.
