The correct answer is it is the computer's address in a computer network.

  • IP address  
    • An Internet Protocol address(IP address) is a numeric label assigned to each device to a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication.
    • The IP address space is managed globally by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) and by five regional Internet registers (RIRs).
    • The function of an IP address:
      1. It identifies the host, or more specifically its network interface.
      2. It provides the location of the host in the network.
    • Two Internet Protocol versions commonly in use:
    1. ARPANET: Advanced Research Projects Agency Network was the first wide-area packet-switching network with distributed control and one of the first networks to implement the TCP/IP protocol suite.
