What is an IP address?

IP Address (Internet Protocol Address) is an unique string of numbers that identifies a computer or a server on a network. When you connect to the Internet, either via your ISP (Internet service provider - AOL, NTL, etc.), or your office LAN connection, you are assigned an IP Address. This address identifies your computer from the other computers. An IP Address can be private, for use on a LAN, or public, for use on the Internet or other WAN. IP Address can be either static, meaning it never changes, or dynamic, meaning each time you dial-in or login you are assigned a new address for that session. IP Addresses are usually expressed as four decimal numbers, each ranging from 0 to 255, separated by periods. For example,

Why should I hide or change IP address?

You could have different reasons to change IP address:
- prevent your ISP, boss and other third parties from spying on youand stay anonymous when you visit web sites, download files, send emails, etc
- bypass websites restrictions for users from certain countries or geographical regions
- bypass your local restrictions to visit certain websites
- keep your computer safe from hacker attacks based on your IP address
- avoid your personal information being used for tracking your browsing habits

If someone knows your IP address, he knows your ISP, can detect your country, city and even street address. When you surf the web, your IP address is left in logs all around the Internet (ISP logs, logs of all sites you visit), so anyone who has access to the logs can see what sites you've visited, what files you've downloaded, what videos you've watched. Hackers and identity thieves can use this information to infiltrate your system and steal personal information, use it in a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, spy upon you or cause damage to your PC.

How can I hide or change IP address?

The most common method to change or hide IP address is to use proxy servers. A proxy server is a kind of buffer between your computer and the Internet resource you access. A user connects to the proxy server and then requests Internet service available on a different server. If the proxy server is also a cache server, it can use its local cache of previously downloaded web pages to provide the page without forwarding the request to the Internet. If the page is not in the cache, the proxy server uses one of its own IP addresses to request the page from the server on the Internet. When the page is returned, the proxy server relates it to the original request and forwards it to the user.
There are several implementations of proxy servers that you can use to hide your IP address:
Proxy servers configured in your browser
You may configure your browser to transmit your browser traffic through proxy servers
Web proxy servers A web proxy is a web site which allows you to access other sites through it. You visit a web proxy site and enter the url of a web site you want to visit anonymously. Web proxy sends request to the necessary web site, receives "answer" and returns it to the user. Web proxies allow you to be anonymous and access web sites that may be restricted for users from certain countries or geographical regions, access web sites blocked by corporate or school proxies.
