Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
As long as you're learning about your IP address, you should learn a little about something called DHCP—which stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. Why bother? Because it has a direct impact on millions of IP addresses, most likely including yours.
DHCP is at the heart of assigning you (and everyone) their IP address. The key word in DHCP is protocol—the guiding rules and process for Internet connections for everyone, everywhere. DHCP is consistent, accurate and works the same for every computer. Remember that without an IP address, you would not be able to receive the information you requested. As you've learned, your IP address tells the Internet to send the information that you requested (Web page, email, data, etc.) right to the computer that requested it.
