What is DNS parking?

What is DNS parking? DNS means Domains Name Server.In the Web hosting business, DNS parking is a service that the Web host will offer to its clients as a way of securing a domain name for future use. The Web host registers the domain name with the InterNIC and "parks" the domain name on a server until it is ready to be made active. By doing this, the Web host ensures the availability of the domain name for the client's future use so that another individual or company cannot register that same domain name.

SERP Definition

SERP is short for search engine results page, the Web page that a search engine returns with the results of its search. The major search engines typically display three kinds of listings on their SERPs. Listings that have been indexed by the search engine’s spider, listings that have been indexed into the search engine’s directory by a human, and listings that are paid to be listed by the search engine

Reciprocal linking-definition

A reciprocal link is an agreement between two webmasters to provide a hyperlink within their own website to each other's web site. Generally this is done to provide readers with quick access to related sites, or to show a partnership between two sites. Reciprocal links can also help to increase traffic to your web site in two ways. First you will probably have some viewers visit your site from clicking the reciprocal link directly. Secondly, most Internet search engines also take into account the number of web sites which contain links to your web site; the more hyperlinks to your site found, the higher up in the search engine rankings (depending on the search term) you'll find your site.

CNAME Record definition

Short for canonical name, also referred to as a CNAME record, a record in a DNS database that indicates the true, or canonical, host name of a computer that its aliases are associated with. A computer hosting a Web site must have an IP address in order to be connected to the World Wide Web. The DNS resolves the computer’s domain name to its IP address, but sometimes more than one domain name resolves to the same IP address, and this is where the CNAME is useful. A machine can have an unlimited number of CNAME aliases, but a separate CNAME record must be in the database for each alias.

CTR - Definition

Short for click-through rate(CTR), the ratio of the number of times a user clicks on an online advertisement per number of viewers who view the Web site that has the advertisement on it. For example, if one out of 100 people who visit a specific Web site click on an advertisement and are taken to the advertiser's site, then the CTR of that advertisement is 1/100, or 1%.

Page impressions- definition

An advertisement's appearance on an accessed Web page. For example, if the page you're on shows three ads, that's three impressions. Advertisers use impressions to measure the number of views their ads receive, and publishers often sell ad space according to impressions. (It can be tough to know, though, whether an impression really means a visitor saw the ad, since they could be browsing without graphics or might not have scrolled down far enough.) Impressions are tracked in a log maintained by a site server and are often sold on a cost per thousand (CPM) basis.Roman M for representing thousand.

hypertext - definition

A special type of database system, invented by Ted Nelson in the 1960s, in which objects (text, pictures, music, programs, and so on) can be creatively linked to each other. When you select an object, you can see all the other objects that are linked to it. You can move from one object to another even though they might have very different forms. For example, while reading a document about Mozart, you might click on the phrase Violin Concerto in A Major, which could display the written score or perhaps even invoke a recording of the concerto. Clicking on the name Mozart might cause various illustrations of Mozart to appear on the screen. The icons that you select to view associated objects are called Hypertext links or buttons.

Hypertext systems are particularly useful for organizing and browsing through large databases that consist of disparate types of information. There are several Hypertext systems available for Apple Macintosh computers and PCs that enable you to develop your own databases. Such systems are often called authoring systems . HyperCard software from Apple Computer is the most famous.

January 1, TCP/IP - Video

Tags: Jan 1 TCP/IP,january 1 2008, january 1, new year, 2008, tcp/ip ,Google, Google Logo, january 1 tcp/ip + video, TCP IP

Abbreviation of Transmission Control Protocol, and pronounced as separate letters. TCP is one of the main protocols in TCP/IP networks. Whereas the IP protocol deals only with packets, TCP enables two hosts to establish a connection and exchange streams of data. TCP guarantees delivery of data and also guarantees that packets will be delivered in the same order in which they were sent. TCP/IP is the basis of almost all Internet communication, and it was adopted by ARPANET on January 1 (if you don't know, ARPANET was the major foundation to the Internet).

January 1, 83 TCP/IP

This article gives a more in-depth look at what TCP/IP is. It was established as an ARPANET standard on January 1, 1983.


IP - is responsible for moving packet of data from node to node. IP forwards
each packet based on a four byte destination address (the IP number). The
Internet authorities assign ranges of numbers to different organizations.
The organizations assign groups of their numbers to departments. IP operates
on gateway machines that move data from department to organization to region
and then around the world.

TCP - is responsible for verifying the correct delivery of data from client to server. Data can be lost in the intermediate network. TCP adds support to detect errors or lost data and to trigger retransmission until the data is correctly and completely received.

- is a name given to the package of subroutines that provide access to TCP/IP on
most systems.


There are many layers built on top of TCP/IP. And another protocol called UDP, which is predominantly used in games and other networking situations where low-latency is required is completely different.

The major layers on top of TCP/IP are:

HTTP: Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (for requesting webpages)

FTP: File Transfer Protocol (for uploading files to websites)

SMTP and POP3: For sending (SMTP) and receiving (POP3) e-mail

IRC: For chatting online

There are also many-non standard protocols built on top of TCP/IP. For instance, AOL Instant Messenger uses a third-party protocol to transfer chat messages between clients!
