Domain extensions are the letters that appear after your domain name. For instance, in www.example.com, .com is the extension. There are several to choose from and they typically represent a word – com represents the word “commercial”, mobi is short for “mobile”, and so on.
A domain name is a unique web address on the Internet. When you register a domain name it becomes your property in the online world. No two domain names can be the same. Domain names can also have different domain extensions, or TLDs, attached to the end of it. For example, you may own www.example.com, however www.example.net may still be available.
Generic top level domains, or gTLDs, are the most well known of the domain extensions available on the Internet. They include familiar extensions such as .com, .net, .info, .org, etc.
A number of new gTLDs will be making their way to the Internet in the next few years. These new domain extensions give individuals and businesses more options to finding the domain name of their choice, and allow your website address to describe the type of business you are.
Some of these new gTLDs include .academy, .buzz, .club, .me, and many more.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) was the most widely deployed cryptographic protocol to provide security over internet communications before it was preceded by TLS (Transport Layer Security) in 1999. Despite the deprecation of the SSL protocol and the adoption of TLS in its place, most people still refer to this type of technology as ‘SSL’.
SSL provides a secure channel between two machines or devices operating over the internet or an internal network. One common example is when SSL is used to secure communication between a web browser and a web server. This turns a website’s address from HTTP to HTTPS, the ‘S’ standing for ‘secure’.
SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organization’s details. When installed on a web server, it activates the padlock and the https protocol (over port 443) and allows secure connections from a web server to a browser. Typically, SSL is used to secure credit card transactions, data transfer and logins, and more recently is becoming the norm when securing browsing of social media sites.
Our cloud hosting offers high reliability. Cloud Sites automatically distributes three mirrored copies of your data across multiple devices to ensure safety and protection. The website is hosted on a virtual partition which draws its resources, such as disk space, from an extensive network of underlying physical servers.
Cloud hosting is the latest form of hosting that has become extremely popular over the past few years. The main concept of cloud hosting is “Divide and Rule” – the resources required for maintaining your website are spread across a cluster of servers that work together, termed as “the cloud”. This greatly reduces chances of any downtimes in case of a server malfunction.
When a website is hosted on shared hosting, the website is placed on the same server as many other sites, ranging from a few to hundreds. Typically in this setup, all domains share resources, such as RAM and CPU from the same server. Cloud hosting, on the other hand, offers nearly unlimited ability to handle high traffic spikes. On Cloud, your website is hosted not only on one but on several servers connected to work as one. Your websites don’t depend on only one Server– even if one server is inaccessible, the Data is retrieved and processed by the other available servers with no downtime.
