At first I thought they meant they didn’t know what that was, but no – they just wanted to find out what the actual “address” – or number – is.

myip logo wide What is my IP address?I sent them to this site – very cleverly named –

Every once in a blue moon your hosting company or service provider or another entity may ask you to identify this. If they do, you simply pop over to the website and it automatically detects your IP address.

If you’re using broadband or any other technique of accessing the internet which doesn’t have a dedicated IP address, you are assigned one each time you connect – and it will different the next time you connect, so don’t go having it engraved on your best matching husband and wife silver bracelets, OK?
