Meaning of DHCP in English
Stands for "Domain Host Control Protocol." A network server uses this protocol to dynamically assign IP addresses to networked computers. The DHCP server waits for a computer to connect to it, then assigns it an IP address from a master list stored on the server. Using DHCP, managing IP addresses isn't a problem for network administrators. Because of the slick automation involved with DHCP, it is the most commonly used networking protocol.
