An ip (v4) address is always in this format: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX, for example,
127.0.0.1

## IPv4 vs IPv6

There are more internet devices than possible IPv4 addresses, so IPv6 was
created.

> An IPv6 address is represented as eight groups of four hexadecimal digits, each group representing 16 bits (two octets, a group sometimes also called a hextet[6][7]). The groups are separated by colons (:). An example of an IPv6 address is:

`2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334`
