DNS stands for Domain Name Service. It ties the domain name to an IP address.

If you have a domain name, you would assign the IP address given to you by your host or domain forwarding service ...

However, if someone is going through the trouble to evaluate the records of two sites, then there is a good chance they are already on to you. Seeing that both ...

Yes use HTTPS everywhere, add a HSTS policy, use only TLS, etc. HTTPS already is "the standard" and it's plenty fast enough with a proper server setup...it's just that most folks don't take the time or wanna spend the money to use it. If you consider time to encode a drawback, consider the results of the encoding (good encryption) as a drawback too. I ...

You say great and buy but only use about 8 gig. And so do the others that buy. Hosts count on this and over sell the storage they actually have available. With the new ...
