An IP address of the most commonly used IPV4 protocol is basically a 32-bit number. The INT data type would have the highest storage density for it. Depending of the form in which you have the address, you might need to convert it into na integer though. The disadvantage is that the number is inconvenient for humans when viewing the table contents with standard tools.
