We just signed up with a new ISP and we got a static IP from them.
Our previous ISP just gave one IP and we were able to configure our web server using that. Now, we have got this new IP with a slash notation. This type is new to me. When I used the CIDR calculator, it gave me the following results:
18.104.22.168/30 IP: 22.214.171.124 Netmask: 255.255.255.252 Number of hosts: 2 Network address: 126.96.36.199 Broadcast address: 188.8.131.52
Can someone please help me by explaining what these are? I could not understand what the number of hosts means. Is that telling that I can use two different IP for DNS (A) records? Also, which one should I setup in my router? The network address or broadcast address?
Thank you very much for any answer you may provide.
