This paper aims to develop and implement an application to calculate the subnetting and how to find the optimized IP depended on hosts number. Many organizations need for speed and accuracy of accomplishment to divide networks into sub-networks, due to the need to divide the networks complicated steps and accuracy, the need for an automated system is advised to simplify and speed up the process is very important. When company purchase web hosting from internet service provider that mean purchase several static IP Addresses and all that IPs needs to store in database, as a result of the distribution of these IPs for different companies it make conflict and waste the time to search for booked IPs. Therefore, an automated system for store the information about the assigned IP in database can solve this problem. The main objective of this paper is to discuss the complexity of calculating subnetting from user perspectives and to create an automated system to generate the subnetting process and store booked IPs. A mathematical model has been developed for the above said process.
