When you type in a URL in your browser's address bar, it instantly takes you to the exact website you requested. Have you ever wondered how the internet knows which website you want to see and how the website knows it's you who's requesting it?
This is where the concept of IP comes into play. Today, millions of websites on the internet are hosted and managed on web servers. Each machine is connected to the internet and has a unique numerical identifier, known as an IP address.
We often don't worry much about the importance of an IP address. However, if we understand a bit more, we know that the internet couldn't function without it. In addition, thanks to advanced geolocation tools, we can find out your approximate location through your IP address.
