What actually is the internet?
Internet is known as “International Network” and sometimes it is also known as “Interconnected Network”. And both are right!

Now Question is What is an IP Address?
IP stands for Internet Protocol and IP Address is the address of each device on the Internet. Every device has its unique IP Address like below.
