An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) through which you access the web, and a domain name is the name of the ISP itself through which you access the web.

Spire logs IP addresses and domain names, then aggregates them for system administration and to monitor the use of our site.
