An IP address is the internet Protocol address that is assigned to every computer. This IP address is tied to a specific household, building or residence, and is used to send information over a network connection. Tracing the location of an IP address is easy with free online sites and tools. After entering your IP address, you will be provided with the city, state and country in which the connection originated.
