Welcome to whatismyIPaddress.com. Your IP address is something you probably rarely think about, but it's vitally important to your online lifestyle. Without an IP address, you wouldn't be able to get today's weather, check the latest news or look at videos online. Why? Because without your IP address, websites like whatismyipaddress.com, CNN or ESPN wouldn't know where to send the information you asked for. They wouldn't be able to get it to YOUR computer.
Still, there seems to be a lot of misinformation, concern and confusion about IP addresses. Part of our mission is to separate facts from hype and give you helpful information. You can learn more about IP address basics in our article called "IP 101".
