Caveats:

If you are reading this paragraph, then you probably don't have JavaScript installed/enabled on your computer.
At this point in time the calculators on this site are entirely dependent on JavaScript. Given enough time and money it is hoped to develop a version in the future which will be able to operate independently. Since JavaScript runs on your own computer, rather than on this server, it has been possible to set up this site much more quickly than if a server-side language was used, and it is possible to serve far more pages with the available bandwidth.

Definitions:

IP Address
Internet Protocol Address, part of the TCP/IP specifications. Specifically, the numeric address of a computer on the Internet, or a similar private network. Currently most systems use IPv4, in which an IP address contains 32 binary digits (bits).
IP v6
Updated version of the Internet Protocol, in which an IP address can contain 128 binary digits (bits), as well as other improvements.
Dotted Decimal
An IP address format, written as a set of four decimal numbers separated by periods, where each group can range from 0 to 255. For example: 123.234.1.10
Quad - Hex
Alternative method of writing an IP address, using four pairs of Hexadecimal digits.
Hexadecimal
Base-16 number system, which allows numbers as high as 15 to be written with a single digit. The number sequence is therefore: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A=10, B=11, C=12, D=13, E=14, F=15.
Net-Mask
A device, written in the same fashion as an IP address, which determines which part of the IP address identifies the Network, and which identifies the individual host.
