Web hosting is a service that makes your site or web application accessible on the internet. It’s also one of the most essential elements to consider when building a website. Web hosting is typically provided by web hosts, which are businesses that maintain, configure, and run physical servers that house websites.
How does web hosting work?
Web hosting is offered by web hosts that rent out their computing servers. These companies also provide the software, services, and connectivity needed for a website to go live.
A server is a computer that stores and makes your web files available on the world wide web.
An MX-record (Mail eXchange-record) is a type of resource record in the Domain Name System (DNS). This is the system that, among other indicates to what specific IP address emails need to be sent. The MX-record contains the host name of the computer(s) that handle the emails for a domain and a prioritization code.
The “A” stands for “address” and this is the most fundamental type of DNS record: it indicates the IP address of a given domain.
What does A record contain?
An A record holds the most essential information about a domain: it contains the IP address associated with that domain. In other words, an A record has the instructions which connect the address of a computer through its hostname.
What is the difference between and A and AAAA record in DNS?
A and AAAA records are equally important when it comes to resolving DNS. The difference lies in that A records is used to resolve a hostname which corresponds to an IPv4 address, while AAAA records are used to resolve a domain name which corresponds to an IPv6 address.
A content delivery network (CDN) is a group of geographically distributed servers that speed up the delivery of web content by bringing it closer to where users are.
Cloud CDN enables customers to deliver content hosted on-premises or in another cloud over Google’s high-performance distributed edge caching infrastructure.
A DNS record is a database record used to map a URL to an IP address. DNS records are stored in DNS servers and work to help users connect their websites to the outside world. When the URL is entered and searched in the browser, that URL is forwarded to the DNS servers and then directed to the specific Web server.
Domain Name Server (DNS) is a naming system for computers, services, or other resource connected to the Internet or a private network. Think of DNS as the address book of the Internet. It allows users to type a domain name like google.com and to connect to the actual server holding the information for that website. The same process occurs every time a user requests a page from a website and Nameservers play a vital role in it.
Responsive web design or responsive web development is an approach to improve the readability of the website pages across various devices, which includes PC desktops, retina displays, tablet screens and mobile phone screens.
Without a DMARC record, an attacker can easily impersonate your domain. They can make an email look like it’s from you when in reality, it isn’t.
DMARC stands for Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance. It is a protocol that was built on top of the existing protocols SPF and DKIM.
DMARC does a few things:
1. It takes into account the results from SPF and DKIM
2. It requires not only for SPF or DKIM to pass but for the domain used by either one to also align with the domain found in the From address in order for DMARC to pass.
3. It reports SPF, DKIM and DMARC results back to the domain found in the From address (ie. sender).
4. It tells receivers how to treat emails that fail DMARC validation by specifying a policy in DNS.
What does OnDMARC do?

In other words…
OnDMARC stops people from trying to impersonate your domain. It also won’t leave you susceptible to phishing attacks and, above all else, your company’s domain will be protected.

How process works
Domain transfer checklist
– Make sure your administrative contact email is current. (It’s where we send your transfer authorization code.)
– Verify that the new registrar will set up your DNS zone files. If you don’t do this, your website and email could go down.
– Start the domain transfer at your new registrar. (We email you to ensure you requested the transfer.)
– Authorize the transfer with your new registrar. (Use the transfer authorization code we email you when you’re done here.)
– We email you confirmation when your transfer completes, usually not more than 5-7 days.
