Default Posting website on IP adress

I've noticed that there are some websites that consist of http://123.456.789.000.com or something like that. it's basically an IP in a url. Do you have to pay for this? or is there a way to host a site from your own computer?

That IP is taking you to the same place the URL is, for example, when you go to http://www.computerforums.org it's really redirecting you to http://72.36.191.10

you can find your IP address by going to www.whatismyip.com

you can direct people to a personal webserver running on your machine by givnig them this IP address,
Yes, it's free, no you don't have to pay for it.

if you do plan to run your own personal webserver then I suggest you head off to somewhere like www.no-ip.com where you can get a free address [subdomain].no-ip.com or sinillar for your computer, that will update if your IP address changes as well.

Some IPs are for websites. It depends on what the server assigns you. Let's say you have this:

Server give you an IP of 82.192.02.462 and a URL of: woot

Well, woot is the website name, but the REAL URL is 82.192.02.462

Some IPs are a name for websites and some IPs are a tag that you"wear" while browsing.

No, only if that IP was your computer. If you're not hosting the site or whatnot from your PC, you wouldn't point it there

That, and it will be a pain in the @$$ because most ISP's Dynamicly assign ip addresses, and every time it changes you will have to update your MX records for your domain.

What are you talking about. You usually buy a domain for a website/forum correct?

The majority of websites/forums are NOT hosted on home pc's

If he his hosting the website of of his computer at home, chances are he has a dynamic IP, unless he is payin extra for a static ip.
