FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

What is Domain, how it works?

What is Domain, how it works?

A domain name is the part of your Internet address that comes after “www”. For example, in Tutorialspoint.com the domain name is tutorialspoint.com.

A domain name becomes your Business Address so care should be taken to select a domain name. Your domain name should be easy to remember and easy to type.

How to Get a Domain Name?

When you plan to put a site online, this is one of the important steps to buy a domain name. This is always not necessary that whatever domain name you are looking that is available so in that case you will have to opt for any other good domain name.

When you buy a domain name it is registered and when domain names are registered they are added to a large domain name register, and information about your site − including your Internet IP address is stored on a DNS server and your contact information etc. is registered with your registrar.

You can buy domain name from any domain registrar like GoDaddy

Domain Extension Types

There are many types of domain extensions you can choose for your domain name. This depends on your business nature.

For example, if you are going to register a domain name for education purpose then you can choose .edu extension.

Below is a reference of the correct usage of certain extensions. But there is no hard and fast rule to go for any extension. Most commonly used is .com

  • .com − Stands for company/commercial, but it can be used for any website.
  • .net − Stands for network and is usually used for a network of sites.
  • .org − Stands for organization and is supposed to be for non-profit bodies.
  • .us, .in − They are based on your country names so that you can go for country specific domain extensions
  • .biz − A newer extension on the Internet and can be used to indicate that this site is purely related to business.
  • .info − Stands for information. This domain name extension can be very useful, and as a new comer it’s doing well.
  • .tv − Stands for Television and are more appropriate for TV channel sites.

Newer domain extensions such as .biz .info and .us etc. have more name choices available as many of the popular domains have yet to be taken and most of the them are available at very nominal prices.

Choosing a Domain Name

The domain name will be your business address. Hence, it is imperative that you choose the domain name with utmost care.

Many people think it is important to have keywords in a domain. Keywords in the domain name are usually important, but it usually can be done while keeping the domain name short, memorable, and free of hyphens.

Using keywords in your domain name gives you a strong competitive advantage over your competitors. Having your keywords in your domain name can increase click through rates on search engine listings and paid ads as well as make it easier to using your keywords in get keyword rich descriptive inbound links.

Avoid buying long and confusing domain names. May people separate the words in their domain names using dashes or hyphen. In the past the domain name itself was a significant ranking factor but now with advanced search engines, it is not a significant factor anymore.

Keep two to three words in your domain name − it will be more memorable. Some of the most memorable websites do a great job of branding by creating their own words. Examples include eBay, Yahoo!, Expedia, Slashdot, Fark, Wikipedia, Google…

You should be able to say it over the telephone once and the other person should know how to spell it and they should know what you sell. If you can do that AND work keywords in there, good for you. If you can’t, skip the keywords.

What are Sub-Domains

You can divide your domain into many sub domains based on your requirement. If you are doing multiple business using the same domain, then it would be useful to have sub-domains for every business. Following are examples of some sub-domains −

You must have seen google.com as a main domain but google has created many subdomains based on their business. Some of them are as follows −

  • adwords.google.com − This sub domain is being used for Google Adwords.
  • groups.google.com − This sub domain is being used for Google Groups.
  • images.google.com − This sub domain is being used for Google Images.

This way, you can present your different business sections in a very good segregated way. It is not a big thing to create a sub-domains. If you already have registered a domain, then your registrar will provide you a way to create sub-domains. You may need to talk to your registrar for more detail.

How domain expires?

How domain expires?

When does a domain expire?

When you registered your domain (e.g. yourgroovydomain.com) with WordPress.com, you purchased the right to use that domain name for a year. If you’d like to continue using it after the first year, you’ll need to renew it annually.

We strongly urge our users to renew their domains in a timely fashion because once they expire, it can be difficult to regain use of them — they aren’t necessarily released back into the pool of available domains, and you may not be able to re-purchase them. Choosing the Auto Renew option on your domain upgrade is the safest route, so you never have to worry about losing control of your domain. See Manage Purchases for more information.

If you haven’t selected the Auto Renew option, we will notify you of the upcoming expiration several times via email and messages on your blog’s Dashboard.

What happens when my domain expires?

Once a domain expires, it goes through a series of steps that make it increasingly difficult (and more expensive) to renew.

Grace Period

For most TLDs registered through WordPress.com, an expired domain falls into a grace period for about 10 days to two weeks. During this short window, the domain can be renewed at the regular price. If you experience difficulty renewing your domain during this time, go to the Help section. There will be a link to contact Support for further assistance.

Redemption Period

After the grace period ends, your domain enters the redemption period, the length of which can vary. This means the domain name can still be renewed, but there is an $80.00 redemption fee required in addition to the normal renewal cost. (This is standard practice for domain registrars.)

It’s important to note that during the redemption phase, domains can be included in expired-domain auctions, where another party can bid on your domain name. If the domain is claimed by someone else in an auction, you will not be able to renew. If you made a payment in attempt to reclaim the domain out of redemption and were unsuccessful, you will get a refund.

Domain Released

If a domain is not redeemed by the original registrant and is not purchased at auction, the domain is usually then returned to the pool of available domain names and can be registered again on a first-come, first-served basis. However, it is common for back-order companies to wait for domains to be released and purchase them the moment they become available. There may also be another individual who likes the domain waiting to buy it.

This means that even if your domain is released, another party can purchase it before you get the chance.

Please note that WordPress.com is not notified whether or not a domain is auctioned off, nor will we be notified when the domain is released, so we can’t provide any advance warning.

What is a Server ?

What is a Server ?

Overview

Web server is a computer where the web content is stored. Basically web server is used to host the web sites but there exists other web servers also such as gaming, storage, FTP, email etc.

Web site is collection of web pages whileweb server is a software that respond to the request for web resources.

Web Server Working

Web server respond to the client request in either of the following two ways:

  • Sending the file to the client associated with the requested URL.
  • Generating response by invoking a script and communicating with database

internet_technologies_tutorial

Key Points

  • When client sends request for a web page, the web server search for the requested page if requested page is found then it will send it to client with an HTTP response.
  • If the requested web page is not found, web server will the send an HTTP response:Error 404 Not found.
  • If client has requested for some other resources then the web server will contact to the application server and data store to construct the HTTP response.

Architecture

Web Server Architecture follows the following two approaches:

  1. Concurrent Approach
  2. Single-Process-Event-Driven Approach.

Add an email address

To add a new email address, perform the following steps:

  1. Enter the email address that you wish to create in the Email text box. If you manage more than one domain, make certain to select the appropriate domain from the menu.
  2. Enter and confirm the new password in the appropriate text boxes.

    Notes:

    • The system grades the password that you enter on a scale of 100 points. 0 indicates a weak password, while 100 indicates a very secure password.
    • Some web hosts require a minimum password strength. A green password Strengthmeter indicates that the password is equal to or greater than the required password strength.
    • Click Password Generator to generate a strong password. For more information, read our Password & Security documentation.
  3. Enter the quota in the Mailbox Quota text box. The quota defines the amount of disk space the account may use to store email.

    Important:

    • Due to mail server constraints, you cannot assign quotas that exceed 4096000 MB (4096 GB or 4 TB).You must assign the unlimited value for quotas that exceed this amount.
    • The system calculates mailbox quota use every four hours. For this reason, you may not receive notifications immediately if an email account reaches or exceeds its quota.
  4. To send client configuration instructions to the account, select the Send welcome email with mail client configuration instructions. option.

    Note:

Set Up Email Client

This feature automatically configures your email client to access your cPanel email addresses. An email client allows you to access your email account from an application on your computer (for example, Outlook® Express and Apple® Mail).

To access this feature, click More for the appropriate email account, and then select Set Up Email Client.

Notes:

  • An email client must already exist on your computer to automatically configure it with cPanel.

To configure your mail client, perform the following steps:

  1. Select and download the appropriate configuration file from the list.
  2. Run the script file to automatically configure your email client to use the selected address.

When the configuration process finishes, your email client opens automatically and logs in to your email account.

Notes about email client configuration

  • If you installed a non-wildcard SSL certificate that matches your hostname, the name of your server matches your hostname. For example, if your hostname is www.example.com and your SSL certificate matches your hostname, your server’s name is www.example.com.
  • If you installed a wildcard SSL certificate, the name of your server also matches any subdomains that correspond to the hostname’s domain. For example, an SSL certificate for *.example.com is valid for my.example.com and foo.example.com.
  • If you did not install an SSL certificate, the server uses the mail subdomain of your domain. For example, mail.example.com. Also, if your certificate does not match your hostname, the server’s name is mail.example.com.

Email Instructions

To send a mail account’s client configuration instructions to a different email address, enter the address in the Email Instructions text box and click Send.

Email subaddresses

This feature, also known as plus addressing, allows senders to route a message directly to the folder of a mailbox.

Email subaddresses use the username+folder@domain format, where username represents the username of the mailbox and folder represents the folder’s name.

For example, if you send a message to username+Important@example.com, the mail server will route the message to the Important folder in the username@example.com mailbox.

Notes:

  • If the folder does not already exist, the system will create that folder.
  • You must subscribe to the folder in your email or webmail client for the folder to appear.

Default email account

Your default email address appears under the Default Email Account heading. The system creates this special email account when your hosting provider creates your cPanel account. The account’s username and password are identical to your cPanel account name and password.

  • If your hosting provider configures this address to serve as a catch-all address for all mail that invalid usernames in your domain receive, it may receive a large amount of spam.
  • You can check and delete the mail that this account receives. To do this through webmail, click Access Webmail and select your desired webmail application.
  • You can also use this account to send mail. To do this through webmail, click Access Webmail and select your desired webmail application.

The actual address of the account is account@example.com, where account represents your account username. You cannot rename, delete, or place a quota on the default account. We recommend that you create a separate email account for daily use.

This address is also the default From and Reply-to address of outgoing email that your account’s PHP scripts send.

You can also set up Outlook.comas an Exchange account. Just follow the same steps above but choose the Exchange option for account type and use m.hotmail.com as your server.

Can I See My Website While It’s In Progress?

Can I See My Website While It’s In Progress?

Absolutely! In fact, we encourage it. We build your website on our development server, and provide you with a username and password so that you can log in and monitor the progress of your site. During this phase, we encourage your feedback if something isn’t quite the way you envisioned it or if you’ve changed your mind. Once your site is ready and you have provided your approval, we release it live on your server and submit your URL to the major search engines.

How Long Does It Take To Create A Website?

How Long Does It Take To Create A Website?

The length of time it takes to create a fully functional website is based on several factors. Custom design work can take anywhere from 1 – 4 weeks, depending on the complexity of the design and the number of revisions you require. The development phase requires an additional 1 – 6 weeks, depending on the number of pages, and the functionality required. Of course, these are general guidelines, and we will make every effort to meet the timeframe you have in mind.

What is bandwidth?

What is bandwidth?

There are three frequently used definitions of bandwidth in the context of Information Technology (IT) and general business.

1) In computer networks, bandwidth is used as a synonym for data transfer rate, the amount of data that can be carried from one point to another in a given time period (usually a second). Network bandwidth is usually expressed in bits per second (bps); modern networks typically have speeds measured in the millions of bits per second (megabits per second, or Mbps) or billions of bits per second (gigabits per second, or Gbps).

Note that bandwidth is not the only factor that affects network performance: There is also packet loss, latency and jitter, all of which degrade network throughput and make a link perform like one with lower bandwidth.  A network path usually consists of a succession of links, each with its own bandwidth, so the end-to-end bandwidth is limited to the bandwidth of the lowest speed link (the bottleneck).

Different applications require different bandwidths.  An instant messaging conversation might take less than 1,000 bits per second (bps); a voice over IP (VoIP) conversation requires 56 kilobits per second (Kbps) to sound smooth and clear.  Standard definition video (480p) works at 1 megabit per second (Mbps), but HD video (720p) wants around 4 Mbps, and HDX (1080p), more than 7 Mbps.

Effective bandwidth — the highest reliable transmission rate a path can provide — is measured with a bandwidth test. This rate can be determined by repeatedly measuring the time required for a specific file to leave its point of origin and successfully download at its destination.

2) Bandwidth is the range of frequencies — the difference between the highest-frequency signal component and the lowest-frequency signal component — an electronic signal uses on a given transmission medium. Like the frequency of a signal, bandwidth is measured in hertz (cycles per second). This is the original meaning of bandwidth, although it is now used primarily in discussions about cellular networks and the spectrum of frequencies that operators license from various governments for use in mobile services.

3) In business, bandwidth is sometimes used as a synonym for capacity or ability. In this sense, bandwidth usually refers to having time or staffing available to tackle something, e.g. “We just don’t have the bandwidth to take on mobile app development, we’re already short-staffed on developers.”
