 for dot notation
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  dot notation
  
      Berkeley Unix notation for an Internet
     address, consisting of one to four numbers (a "dotted quad")
     in hexadecimal (leading 0x), octal (leading 0), or
     (usually) decimal.  It represents a 32-bit address.  Each
     leading number represents eight bits of the address (high byte
     first) and the last number represents the rest.  E.g. address
     0x25.32.0xab represents 0x252000ab.  By far the most common
     form is four decimal numbers, e.g. 146.169.22.42.
  
     Many programs accept an address in dot notation in place of a
     hostname.
