The term IP address refers to Internet Protocol address.  It is a numerical address that is assigned to any device like a computer, tablet or smartphone that is connected to the internet. It can be looked at as being similar to a street address that is assigned to a house. The IP address of a domain name is automatically converted by internet DNS servers from this numerical address into domain names like PingYour.com which is helpful because it is easy to remember a domain name like PingYour.com than it would be to remember a long string of numbers in the IP address that the domain name would point towards.
