Public IP stands for Public Internet Protocol

Your public ip address is visible as:

A Public IP address is designated for use in a public domain, such as the Internet. A public IP address is in contrast to a private IP address, which is in an address range designated for use only in a private domain, such as a local area network (LAN).

The organism that manages public address space (routable IP addresses) is the Internet Assigned Number Authority (IANA). IANA is responsible for global coordination of the Internet Protocol addressing systems, as well as the Autonomous System Numbers used for routing Internet traffic [].

As Public IPs are only assigned at an organization scale, third world countries which get internet services through intermediate service providers, are usually unable to assign routed IPs to their clients, due to the assignment restriction imposed by the hierarchy. The result of that is boosting the economny of hosting companies where endusers wishing to publish their own website need to subscribe in order to make their content accessible to the world.

There remains some methods to avoid this restriction by establishing an Open VPN tunnel to a server hosting the OpenVPN software where network bridging is used to assign the public ip from one of the server interfaces to one of the connecting vpn clients.
