Hi Lainey, IP stands for "Internet protocol address." This is a unique series of numbers that identify computers on the Internet. Each computer connected to the Internet must have its own IP address, and each Web site must similarly have an IP address. It's kind of like a home address but for computers, and much the way a telephone number identifies a telephone on a telephone network. The number will normally be assigned by your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

IP addresses consist of four numbers between 0 and 255, separated by dots. Hope that helps :)
