In simple language, an IP address is a combination of numbers that uniquely identifies one’s system. It’s like a house has an address to get an mail, just like that your computer has an address to receive the data from the web. The word protocol refers to some set guidelines which need to be followed while browsing for global connectivity. The networking part of the Internet is defined by exact specifications (guidelines) for connecting on the Internet.
Example 1: In this example, we are going to use the ipify for SSL contained websites (having https protocol) to get the clients IP address.
Example 2: In this example, we are going to use the ipinfo to get the clients IP address in a alert box.
Note: Sometimes it will not work on Google Chrome and Internet Explorer for the default setting. Supported by Firefox and Edge.
