- How does TraceMyIP.org compare to other website statistics systems such as Google Analytics, Webalizer Stats, Statcounter & AWstats for example?
TraceMyIP.org is a completely different platform with some features not available anywhere else. Try it out!
My website serves content to European Union member states and is subject to the EU Cookie Law. What can I do to achieve a better compliance that requires me to get each visitor's consent for cookie usage?
TraceMyIP.org has a Cookieless Tracking mode that allows you to get traffic information about your website without utilizing tracking cookies on all devices, including iOS, Android and Windows tablets, phones, laptops and desktop computers. Although the cookie free tracking solution makes it easier to achieve the goal, you may still need to give your website visitors and option to opt-out of being tracked. Please refer to your local EU cookie law directive.
Currently, the EU Cookie Law affects the following European Union member states to an individual extent:
Denmark, Austria, Germany, Czech, Slovenia, Hungary, Slovakia, Latvia, Finland, Sweden, Netherlands, Greece, Malta, Luxembourg, Portugal, United Kingdom, Ireland, Romania, Cyprus, Lithuania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Poland, Spain, France, Estonia, Italy and websites that target their content or do business with individuals that reside in European Union. The required cookie law solution would be to discontinue using cookies that are stored in the visitor's browser.
- Does TraceMyIP.org affect the bandwidth usage with my website hosting provider (both ipv4 and ipv6)?
Just like a "green car" technology approved by the US Environmental Protection Agency's, TraceMyIP.org does not substantially increase the bandwidth usage of your website hosting provider services since the actual website statistics analysis software and computer data storage is hosted on TraceMyIP.org dedicated servers. The entire website traffic analysis is performed by the CPU power grid available within TraceMyIP.org dedicated server computer infrastructure. Furthermore, by utilizing TraceMyIP.org and disabling your own website's dedicated server statistics software such as the webalizer or cpanel's awstats statistics software, it is feasible to save bandwidth and CPU processing resources, thus speeding up the website page loading.
- Would TraceMyIP.org code trigger anti-spam and antivirus security or privacy alerts on my website visitors' computers?
TraceMyIP.org is strictly a website visitor IP checker and tracker software which does not utilize any malicious code base that may trigger online security or privacy alerts anti-spam or antivirus software. Anti-spam and antivirus software looks for certain virus or malicious digital code signatures and patterns and intercepts them before they're downloaded onto end-user's computer hard drive or placed in the dedicated space range of the random access memory. TraceMyIP.org does not contain such code patterns, therefore the anti-spam and antivirus security alerts are not triggered.
- What is an IP?
An IP is an abbreviation of Internet Protocol. IP serves a role of a digital computer identification number that is assigned by a network it's connected to. Without an IP address networking and IP tracking would not be possible. Currently there are 2 formats of IP addresses - ipv4 and ipv6. IPv6 is the latest implementation to expand the availability of an IP address assignment range.
- Why does a computer IP address change from time to time?
Every time people establish a new connection with their broadband Internet Service Provider's (ISP) account either using a wired home / business connection or a wireless connection, the ISP's network assigns an individual Internet Protocol to them. This is necessary for any computer in order to connect to the web and so that other web servers could provide the data exchange facilities.
- How is IPv4 different from IPv6?
IPv6 address format is the successor to IPv4 which is the initial IP address format standard. The main difference with IPv6 address is its availability. It also contains additional features, such as simplified IP address assignment, network renumbering and IP announcements for the router nodes. While the 32bit IPv4 address pool is virtually exhausted and allowed somewhere around 4.3 billion addresses to be assigned, IPv6 is 128bits and can produce 3.4W1038 unique IP addresses.
Currently, most of the web servers are not configured to handle IPv6 connections, meaning an IPv6 client cannot connect to an IPv4 server. Thus, an implementation called IPv4-6 tunneling is created mostly on an ISP level to allow an IPv6 client to connect to an IPv4 host. Many devices such as tablets, laptops, phones and desktop PCs need their software updated in order to support the new IPv6 IP address format.
- What about users' privacy when it comes to using Internet?
When people connect to their ISP's network using a desktop computer, mobile satellite phone or mobile cellular phone or an Internet appliance, their IP's physical location is associated with an account owner's information is digitally stored on a dedicated server used to issue the service bills, making it possible for legal authorities to easily trace an Internet user's physical location. Furthermore, even without having a legal warrant to request an owner's account address information from an ISP, using tools like TraceMyIP.org, it's possible for virtually anyone to approximate their IP's physical location. TraceMyIP.org website analytics and visitor's computer tracking functionality does just that but without providing a name of street address of an Internet user, which would breach the privacy laws.
- Who can see and track my IP address?
When you send emails, post on web forums, use instant messengers or access any online accounts - your computer's IP is logged by the network receiving communication requests. This is an essential step that cannot be avoided and contributes to various technical, security and privacy aspects. Both IPv4 and IPv6 address formats are similar in their implementation and thus are captured by the web servers' statistical software in the same way.
- Which digital computer devices utilize an IP address and can be detected by TraceMyIP.org ?
Any digital computer device that has a capability to connect to world wide web whether it's using wireless wifi connection, bluetooth, 3G or 4G implementation. These IP devices include mobile cellular phones such as iphone, iphone 3G, iphone 3S, iPad and all iPad 2 and iPad 3 tablet revisions, Motorola Moto Q, Nexus One Android, Samsung Tab & Galaxy, Blackberry, Nokia, Amazon's Kindle Fire, and Kindle Fire HD tablets, HTC phones and tablet, virtually all Verizon LG mobile cellular internet phones, Google Nexus phones and tablets, Sprint Internet phones, AT&T smart phones, Nokia smart phones, latest Palm-One Treo mobile phones, T-Mobile smartphones, Samsung and Sony smartphones and tablets, iPad tablet and iphone clones, digital WiFi appliances, laptops with wireless wifi and bluetooth connectivity and all desktop computers that ran Windows, Mac, Linux or other desktop operating systems. TraceMyIP.org' IP website tracking feature allows tracking the mobile cell phone, tablet and desktop type of computer devices and delivering the captured data via an easy to understand interface.
However, the mobile devices that utilize an IP address identification are not limited to phones, tablets and laptops applications. The new GPS navigation (global positioning systems) and vehicle tracking systems and smart appliances are the new era of the Internet connected devices. From ordinary cars that utilize GPS voice guidance to automated train GPS systems feedback devices to Airplane GPS autopilot navigation. Whether connected via a proprietary protocols or internal networks - all of them are identified by a unique Internet Protocol address. As the network deployment emerges, all devices - from personal computers to autopilot GPS navigation systems eventually become a part of the same global network.
The latest developments in home automation devices and software, also add another vast array of digital computer devices to those that utilize IP addresses, thus each time they're connected to the WAN network, identify themselves on the wired or wireless network.
- What can be done to protect my IP's security and privacy?
One option is to connect your wired or wireless Internet devices to a local network or a hotel, airplane and any mobile hotspot network that is not your local home network. When you connect to any public network in a hotel for example, your IP will appear as that as assigned by a hotel wifi access router. This can be an effective measure of an extra security precaution. However, a precaution should be taken anytime you connect to public networks. Every time you travel anywhere in the world, take family, personal or business vacations, you will most likely have to connect using publicly available networks such as those available in resorts, hotels, cruise ships, airplanes or restaurants. Whenever you use public networks, always keep in mind that the networks may be monitored with packet capture software, that logs all of the outbound information on that particular LAN network. Another security risk factor to consider is being connected to the same LAN network with other computers. If your computer has any type of file sharing or transfer capabilities enabled, you'll be revealing the information on your computer with all other people connected to the same network in hotels, resorts, cruise ships, airplanes and restaurants.
Another credit should be given to proxy server option, that allows you to hide an IP address by using a virtual private secure proxy server. This helps to conceal your private IP information to a certain extent, however, if not carefully selected, it may do more harm then good.
- What is a Proxy Server?
A Proxy server is a network service which utilizes a dedicated computer on a remote network allowing internet users such as yourself to make indirect connections to other computers / websites using its own network connection. All of your web browsing activity is transferred to a remove server first. When using a proxy server, the recipient of your communications will see an IP address of the proxy server and not yours. There are plenty of hosted proxy servers establishments on the world wide web offer free online user accounts to hide your online identity. This, however, is not a bullet-proof method.
- Is there a risk using a Proxy Server?
(!) Definitely. Using anonymous proxy servers from unknown and not reputable providers to hide your Internet protocol address while using phones, tablets and computers may actually present a more serious threat that can eventually contribute to the digital information leak and all risks associated with it. Since the digital data from those wireless and wired devices has to pass through a third party proxy server, any information you transmit through that server can be intercepted and indexed, including any messages you may have sent including but not limited to your account log
