Basic Aspects Of The Websites

Before you are moving to start building a blog, you should know some of the aspects on the websites. Let begin it,

What Is Internet Protocol Address?

Every unique computer has an uncommon IP address, which consists of a set of number separated by periods for example 97.123.12.801. This set of unique numbers is a language that the computer uses to communicate with each other over the network.

IP addresses allow any number of internet-connected computers to be distinguished from other computers. It’s just like calling someone on the telephone. Everyone in the world has a unique telephone number, and you have to dial someone’s exact number to reach them.

"IP was development began in 1974, led by computer scientists Bob Kahn and Vint Cerf"

What is the URL?

The URL acronym is Uniform Resource Locator. It is a unique identifier used to locate a resource on the internet. It is also referred to as a web address.

URLs consist of multiple parts including a protocol and domain name that tells a web browser how and where to retrieve a resource.

End users use URLs by typing them directly into the address bar of a browser or by clicking a hyperlink found on a webpage, bookmark list, in an email or from another application.

A URL is the most common type of Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). URIs are strings of characters used to identify a resource over a network. URLs are essential to navigating the internet.

Now, What is Domain? And How Does it works?

What is Domain? And How It works?

Let me explicit you by the phone analogy, assume you’re having your friend number(that number is compared to IP number or address). You are saving the number by name(the name is compared by the domain name). In your phone contact list(contact storage are compared to the server), many numbers are saved by names.

Now you are willing to call a person, what you do? you may just type name and find out the person and call it off. the name is unique and human readable. Likewise, Domain name is the unique and human readable language of the Internet addresses of websites.

Three aspects of a Domain Name

Now that we understand what a domain name is, let’s break it down a bit more. There are three different parts of a domain name that assign meaning to the domain.

They are made up of three parts: a top-level domain (sometimes called an extension or domain suffix), a domain name (or IP address), and an optional subdomain.

Domain name: Trioangle is the domain name in trioangle.com.

Top-level domain: This is the suffix at the end of the URL. Examples include.com,.org, or.blog.

Subdomain: This is a prefix that further classifies a domain, such as "www.trioangle.com".

The "HTTP://" is part of a page’s URL but not its domain name and is known as the "protocol."

What is the Root domain?

The combination of only both second-level domain (SLD or 2LD) or domain name and the top-level domain is known as " root domain". The highest hierarchical level of a site and is separated from the Top Level Domain by a dot(. ) (e.g. trioangle.com)

Now let’s know about Domain, TLD, SLD, DNS.

What is DNS?

DNS, which stands for domain name system, controls your domain name’s website and email settings. When visitors go to your domain name(trioangle.com), it’s DNS settings control which company’s server(IP address) it reaches out to.

If you change those settings to use another company’s servers, visitors will reach them instead of us when visiting your domain.

Let’s look at each of these elements more closely

Top-level domain

Top-level domain (TLD) is the formal term for the suffix that appears at the end of a domain name. Some example of top-level domains include:

.com

.net

.org

.edu

While we’re probably all familiar with the TLDs above, there are actually over 1,000 possible TLDs from which webmasters can choose. This includes things like.book,.clothing,.dog, and.lifeinsurance (to name a few), as well as TLDs associated with specific countries or territories like.uk (United Kingdom) or.dk (Denmark). These countries- (and sometimes region-)specific TLDs are known as country code top-level domains or ccTLDs.

Domain name

Domain names are the second level of a domain’s hierarchy (after the top-level domain). Domain names on a specific TLD (called a root domain, discussed below) are purchased from registrars and represent the specific, unique location of a website. In the following examples, the domain names are bolded:

http://www.example.org

https://moz.com

http://www.blogspot.com

Search engines do use the keywords in domain names as a ranking factor (which explains the existence of domains like "where-to-buy-the-best-donuts-in-Seattle.com"), but tread lightly when thinking about optimizing your root domain for search engines: One of the specific functions of Google’s algorithm is to combat these keyword-stuffed exact-match domains.

Root domain

While the term "root domain" was originally created in the context of DNS (domain name servers), it typically refers to the combination of a unique domain name and a top-level domain (extensions) to form a complete "website address." Your website’s root domain is the highest page in your site hierarchy (probably your homepage). Individual pages or subdomains can be built off the root domain, but each page URL must technically include the same root domain in order to be a part of your website.

Examples of root domains include:

Trioangle.com

example.net

All the pages on a single website have the same root domain (discussed below), and no two different websites can have the same root domain.

Because root domains represent whole websites instead of specific web pages, counting linking root domain instead of linking URLs (pages) can be a more accurate way to judge the size of your site’s inbound link profile (generally speaking, more linking root domains is better). Tools like Link Explorer or Majestic can help uncover the total number and specific identity of root domains linking to your site.

Subdomain

Subdomains are the third level of a domain’s hierarchy and are parts of a larger top-level domain. They are added in front of the root domain and separated from the domain name with a period.

For example, "blog.example.com" and "english.example.com" are both subdomains of the "example.com" root domain. Subdomains are free to create under any root domain that a webmaster controls.

The two most common subdomain choices are:

These are also the subdomains that commonly result in canonicalization errors.
