IP Address


Posted by Guildford Web Services on 14/August/2019
This is the third in a five part series called Web Basics.

So, we have lightly brushed on the Internet and the World Wide Web, so, where does the IP address come into all of this?

It is essentially the numbered version of a website. Think of this as the telephone number of a website. So if you go to http://81.143.220.217, you are taken to our development server.

You see, computers deal with numbers rather than words or letters and this is true to all websites.

Obviously, if you have used our design services, we have never used our ‘phone number’ we will always give you out something along the lines of this https://dev.tjay.me.uk/yourname . This is because our address is tied to a domain name, which we will touch on next blog post!
