ICANN is a non-profit corporation that is responsible for the allocation of IP addresses and also manages the domain name system .

ICANN Full Form is “Internet Corporation For Assigned Names and Numbers.”

All computers that are connected to the Internet, whether it is servers or home PCs, all have an IP address. At the same time it will become slightly unrealistic even for ICANN if it assigns an individual IP address to each computer .

ICANN allocates blocks of IP addresses to companies, educational institutions, and Internet service providers. Then these organizations allocate IP addresses to computers so that they can use Internet connections.

Although ICANN is a US-based organization, it also has a global Internet community. According to the ICANN website, it is an organization “fully dedicated to preserving the operational stability of the Internet; While promoting competition; In addition to achieving broad representation of global Internet communities; And at the same time in making such a policy that is appropriate for its mission, while it is right for bottom-up, consensus-based processes ”( icann.org ).
