How does a DHCP Server dynamically assign an IP address to a host?

Address are permanently assigned so that the host uses the same address at all times.

Addresses are allocated after a negotiation between the server and the host to determine the length of the agreement.

Addresses are assigned for a fixed period of time. At the end of that period, a new request for an address must be made, and another address is then assigned to the host.

Addresses are leased to a host. A host will usually keep the same address by periodically contacting the DHCP server to renew the lease.
