Private IP addresses are characterized as private because they are not globally delegated, meaning they are not allocated to any specific organization, and IP packets addressed by them cannot be transmitted onto the public Internet. Anyone may use these addresses without approval from a regional Internet registry (RIR). If a private network needs to connect to the Internet, it must use either a network address translator (NAT) gateway, or a proxy server.
An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label assigned to each connection.The computer/mobile/tablet uses this to establish the connection.One can get their IP using websites like http://www.ip-details.com/ and with the increase in number of internet usage....IP Addresses are running out.
Some blocks of addresses had been reserved for special purposes, known as Private IP addresses...one of these purposes was for private networking and it is these private addresses that help to relieve the pressure on the remaining address space..
The ranges and the amount of usable IP's are as follows:
10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255
172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255
192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255
These blocks of addresses can be used by anyone, anywhere - even if your neighbor is using the exact same addresses this won't cause a problem. This is possible because these addresses are known as "non-Routable addresses" and the devices on the internet that move data from one place to another are specially programmed to recognize these addresses.

How are IP addresses assigned?Are IP addresses assigned by electronic devices being used, or by the internet connection? For example, if you visit a coffeehouse with WiFi, is everyone online at the same moment there recognized at the same IP address, or are they identified by their unique...

I just noticed this. Is it new or has it always been there? What would be the reason for this posting?

We deployed a few changes to the site in the last hour. You may have noticed some funny behavior briefly. The biggest change is that we modified the location of advertisements on hubs a bit, in a way that hopefully will increase your (and our) earnings. Give it a few days to...

All of my sites use dedicated ip addresses. However I'm starting to make small websites that I intend to sell down the road. Since I'm making a lot of small sites, and most people never even think about getting a dedicated ip address, should I just let them all use a shared one?

Is it possible to block a hubber from visiting your hubpages? if one has been particularly offensive, can they be "banned" from one's hubpages?

Could there be a block I.P. Address added to our hubs in the comment section? I know we can report this, but it would be quicker if we could just block them when they appear on our hubs. Same would go for those who comment and we would rather block anyways. I can't stand wasting my time receiving...
