  IP Address

IP Address (Internet Protocol address) is as your telephone number. It uniquely identifies every host on a network. Just as your mailing address uniquely identifies your home, an IP address uniquely identifies a host.  


A protocol is a rule or a set of rules and standards for communicating that computers use when they send data back and forth. Both the sender and receiver involved in data transfer must recognize and observe the same protocols.  

Name resolution

Resolving or translating the name to an IP address is called name resolution. It is the process of figuring out the IP address that corresponds to a given name. For example the URL for the IpAddressLocation Web site is and have ip address When you type TCP/IP will need to translate these meaningful words into the IP address. After resolving of a name to an IP address, the host can then figure out whether the destination is local or remote and can continue with the communication. This is similar to finding a phone number when all you know is a name.
