Private IP Address

Back to the Glossary


An Internet address created strictly for use on an internal network. Private addresses are issued by a network device, like a router, which draws them from a set of addresses assigned to it by a DHCP server. To access the Internet, a private address is converted to a public IP address via a network address translation (NAT) service.
