FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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 −
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.
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.
Once a domain expires, it goes through a series of steps that make it increasingly difficult (and more expensive) to renew.
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.
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.
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.
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 respond to the client request in either of the following two ways:
Web Server Architecture follows the following two approaches:
To add a new email address, perform the following steps:
0indicates a weak password, while
100indicates a very secure password.
The user can access this message via Webmail, or you can send the message to another mailbox with the Email Instructions option in the Set Up Email Client interface.
Use a secure password. A secure password is not a dictionary word, and it contains uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.
To change a password, perform the following steps:
0indicates a weak password, while
100indicates a very secure password.
The quota for an address defines the amount of mail, in Megabytes, that the account can store. When your mailbox exceeds this limit, the system returns any incoming mail to the sender with a message that states that the recipient’s mailbox is full. The system administrator can change this behavior in WHM’s Exim Configuration Manager interface (Home >> Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Manager).
To change a mail quota, perform the following steps:
To suspend logins, incoming email, or both for an email account, perform the following steps:

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.
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
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.
The actual address of the account is
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.
If Microsoft Outlook.com — Live or Hotmail if you’re retro — is your mail, contacts, and calendar provider of choice, it’s easy to set up and access it right on your iPhone or iPad. Microsoft might have taken a while, and gone through a lot of names and iterations, to get their online consumer services into the modern age, but what they’ve finally settled on is impressive. There’s Exchange if you need ActiveSync. If you don’t, there’s Outlook.
And you’re done! You will miss out on any web-specific features, which are what Microsoft is working to make all shiny and revolutionary, but you will get all your mail in the unified inbox, right beside iCloud and Gmail if you use those services as well. 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.
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.
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.
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.”
