Some groups, like MIT, were given literally millions of addresses, more than they can ever use, but it’s not really practical for them to give them back now. Ask anyone who has to deal with CIDR; earplugs to muffle the blood-curdling screams of terror are optional.) Over the next few years, IPv6 will be phased in, increasing the number of addresses to 2 (3.40e38, give or take), enough for everyone and all their major appliances to have an address. There’s only so many numbers out there, at least as far as the computer is concerned.
(Basically, each of the four parts in the “dotted quad” address can only be between 0 and 255.) Silly technical limitations eat up a lot of those addresses; historical design decisions eat up some more; and of course a LOT of them are already in use.
Every time your computer comes online, you tell the DDNS server what your current address is.(These ‘leases’ usually only last for a few days, and sometimes only a few hours.) At the end of the lease, you may be able to negotiate a new lease, but you can’t be sure of it. Your ISP, cable company, or whoever, might let you have a dedicated IP, but they’ll probably charge you extra for it.It’s more likely, though, that they can’t or won’t help you…To a human, names like that (or ibm.com, or yahoo.com, or any of the other four million domain names registered) make perfect sense. Computers use IP addresses (“dotted quad” numbers like .255) to talk with each other on the Internet.IP addresses consist of four numbers, each between 0 and 255. (Some blocks of numbers are reserved for a variety of special purposes.) But not to the computer. DNS is the middleman, translating domain names into numbers (and, occasionally, the other way around).
(Don’t use that number for anything; I have a dynamically-assigned address too.) This mapping isn’t always one-to-one, but for this discussion let’s pretend they are. MX records specify other computers that handle mail for a given domain.
