ImOn Plants it Forward!

At the end of April, ImOn Communications distributed 200 trees through the Planting Forward program to help replace trees that were lost in last August's derecho. ImOn employees were offered two free trees for their properties and one to give away to a friend, neighbor, or family member. In addition, ImOn donated eight trees for the grounds of the ImOn Ice Arena and held a drawing to give ten lucky ImOn customers a free 15-gallon oak tree. All the trees and shrubs distributed through the program are native species and help to contribute to the crucial ecosystem for birds and pollinators.

"ImOn was happy to have the opportunity to participate in the Planting Forward program and help our community regrow after the Derecho. Giving these trees was a great way for ImOn to connect with our colleagues, our customers, and our community," said Patrice Carroll, CEO of ImOn Communications.

Call Before You Dig!

Download Images to View While we know you are excited to get started on your spring yard projects, ImOn wants to remind you to click (iowaonecall.com) or call 8-1-1 at least 48 hours before starting any digging. All sorts of utility lines are buried on your property and they can be easily damaged by even shallow digging. If you hit an underground utility or communication line, you could seriously harm yourself and those around you, disrupt service to an entire neighborhood, and potentially be responsible for fines and repair costs. Using the Iowa One Call system is fast and free!

You've probably heard the term "IP Address," but unless you are in IT or a computer science major, you probably don't know much about it or how it works. So, we wanted to shed some light on this.

IP Address stands for Internet Protocol Address. It is a unique group of numbers that computers, tablets, and smartphones use to identify themselves and communicate with other devices on a network or over the Internet. In layman's terms, an IP address serves the same purpose for a computer as your street address serves for your house. Just like you would address a letter to send in the mail, computers use the IP address to send data to a specific computer on a network. Without a unique IP address, you would not be able to communicate with other devices, users, and websites on the Internet.

An IP address uses a set of 4 numbers, ranging from 0 to 255, separated by periods. An example would be 3.16.153.193. Also, instead of typing in a domain name for a website, like www.MyImOn.com, you can just enter the website's IP address into the web browser instead. But, since it would be hard to remember all of the unique sets of numbers for each website you wanted to visit, your computer translates each website URL into the specific IP address for you.

There are few times you will probably have to deal with IP addresses in your day-to-day life. One of the times you may need it is if you wanted to make changes to your Wi-Fi router, like changing the network name, creating a new Wi-Fi password, or changing the security setting. To do that, you would need to access your router's log-on page, which usually requires knowing your router's IP address. If you are interested in learning how to find your router's IP address, click here.
