You may request a static IP address from your Internet service provider for a home computer, but doing so may cost a little bit extra. If you are working with a university or office computer, there is a high probability that your computer has a static IP address.

The reason for using single quotes is that when we begin to insert HTML code in our CGI programs, the CGI programs will often reserve the double quotes for specific purposes.
