Frequently Asked Questions
Do I own my IP address?
Your IP address is not permanent. It can change at any time, especially if you connect to the WiFi of your favourite coffee shop or establishment. Even at home, your IP address can change whenever you turn your router on and off.
How can I check my IP address?
You can check your IP address or domain using an IP Address Checker. If the address matches the IP assigned to you by your ISP, you have a public IP address.
What’s the difference between private and public IP addresses?
Based on accessibility, IP addresses are divided into two main categories: private and public IP addresses. Private IP addresses are internal IP addresses that cannot be used to access the internet directly. It's used within your local area network (LAN). They’re not recognized over the internet and are only assigned by a LAN administrator. For direct access to your local device using an assigned private IP, a Network Address Translator (NAT) should be used.
