Since the evolution of the internet and internet reaching many areas of the world the usage of the internet increased and the number of devices that are connected to the internet got increased 10 fold. Each and every device that is connected to the internet or the network must have a unique address which could be used to identify the device that is connected. There are like 25+ billion devices that are connected to the internet or the network. But there are only less than 4 billion IPv4 address available.

If we have to grand IP address to every device available in the network then it is very much unlikely since the availability of the IPv4 address is very limited. That’s why the concept of private IP address came into the existence. Here these private IP address can be assigned to the device that is inside the private
network and not on the public domain.

This just improves the IP reusability and helps in loss of the public IP address that are not necessary. These private IP address can be reused in the private networks but these address can be accessed only by the hosts that are inside the network.

Private IP address and the IP registry:

The main purpose of the IP address registry is that it regulates the IP address usage of the devices. But this registry does not handle the usages of the private IP addresses. Because two networks that are related to each other can use the same private addresses despite the other networks uses it. Since the IPv4 address will exhaust soon they have come up with the IPv6 addresses. These addresses will help to overcome the IP address scarcity.
