Will my computer IP address be recorded?

< Back to FAQs 

For security reasons your computers IP address will be recorded.  

An IP address ( Internet Protocol Address): is a exclusive number used in all information technology devices (printers, routers, modems, et al) which identifies and allows them the ability to communicate with each other on a computer network. There is a standard of communication which is called an Internet Protocol standard (IP). In laymans terms it is the same as your home address. In order for you to receive snail mail at home the sending party must have your correct mailing address (IP Address) in your town (network) or you do not receive bills, pizza coupons or your tax refund. 

The same is true for all equipment on the internet. Without this specific address, information cannot be received. IP addresses may either be assigned permanently for an Email server/Business server or a permanent home resident or temporarily, from a pool of available addresses (first come first serve) from your Internet Service Provider.
