The IP address or the Internet Protocol address is the numerical label or mark assigned or allocated to every device joining a computer network that applies or uses IP or Internet Protocol for its communication. The IP address provides 2 main functions: location addressing and network interface identification or network interface ID.

When you have a static IP address, this means you have a fix IP address. In other words, your IP address will not change. Your device will always use the same IP address every time it connects to a network. In a dynamic IP address, here your IP address constantly changes.

The majority of devices use dynamic IP addresses because it is the network that assigns it whenever the device connects. A dynamic IP address is a temporary IP address because it can change over time.
