How Is the Network Portion and Host Portion of an IP Address Specified?

The Internet Protocol (IP) address is what makes every device connected to the internet identifiable. It is made up of a series of numbers that provide important information about the network and host identification. 


How Is the Network Portion and the Host Portion of an IP Address Identified?

Our IP addresses come from finite pools of numbers which are taken from two internet protocol pools. Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) and Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), these protocols are divided into two parts, the network section which specifies a particular network, and the host section which specifies a particular computer on the Local Area Network (LAN).


What is 24 in IP address?

IPv4 has a total of 32-bits and the number of bits contained in the network is written after the slash. For example, if a network has the address “”, the number “24” refers to the number of bits contained in it, leaving the rest of the bits to contain host addresses. 

IPv6 has a total of 128-bits and unlike IPv4, it’s structured so that all LANs have 64 bits contained in the network as opposed to IPv4 which is variable.

How to Protect Your IP Address
