The IP Address can be traced back to a server in Redmond, United States. The Internet Service Provider (ISP) is the respective property of Microsoft Hosting, according to the results of IP Tracing services carried out by  

'IP' is an abbreviation of the term 'Internet Protocol', which is basically a unique number that every participating device in a network has assigned to it. IP Addresses are put in a dotted decimal number format so that they can be easily understood and memorized by humans, but in reality, they are found in a binary form. Computers communicate using binary numbers, and so the IP Address would something look like this: 10000100.01010011.00110100.10010011.

As you can see, there are four separate numbers in an IP Address, all of which are separated with a small dot. Each of the four sections is known as an octet because it contains eight different digits. Because four multiplied by eight gives you thirty-two, IP Addresses are often referred to as 32-bit numbers.

In total, there are around 4.3 billion possible number combinations that you could find in a single IP Address. This is why every Internet Protocol number is unique and can be traced back to a single device in a particular network. Certain IP Addresses may have a specific number arrangements, though - an indication that they belong to a certain IP Class. The main IP Classes are as follows: Default Network, Class A, Loopback, Class B, Class C, Class D, Class E and Broadcasts. The IP Addresses belonging to these classes will normally have a specific number arrangement at the beginning or end of the address to indicate which class they are from.
