What is DHCP?

DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol is a network protocol that dynamically assigns an IP address to a network device. A DHCP server automatically assigns IP address whenever a computer which is a DHCP client is turned on or whenever it receives a request by client computer. Whenever the client’s system gets turned off and restarts, DHCP assigns a new IP address to it automatically, thus removing manual input of IP address in the system.
