It is what you usually type on your browser address field to access a website or your VPS server.
If you avail a TeamTalk Hosting from us, the domain name is what you put in the host address field.
One example is saktohost.com which is our domain name.
A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a powerful computer that stores applications and data. It can be accessed through an IP address. It can be a dedicated server or a shared server depending on your preference. Two types of VPS server are Windows-based and Linux-based operating system. What we offer is a VPS server which you must access remotely through the use of an SSH client or an FTP application.
An Internet Protocol (IP) is a string of numbers that acts as an address to your VPS server. When you subscribe to our VPS Hosting, we will send you an e-mail containing your server details including the static IP address. The format of IPV4 is like this: 000.000.00.00
An operating system is the most important software that runs on a computer. It manages the computer’s memory and processes, as well as all of its software and hardware. It also allows you to communicate with the computer without knowing how to speak the computer’s language. Without an operating system, a computer is useless.
There are two operating systems available when you talk about VPS servers: Windows and Linux. Our VPS Hosting runs on Linux operating system.
The domain name system (DNS) is like a phonebook of the internet.
When you type a website domain on your browser, one of the things that happen is the request goes to a DNS server which acts like a middleman between you the client, and the intended server which stores the website you are trying to access.
What it does is it matches the domain to an IP address then processes the request accordingly.
A domain propagation or DNS propagation is the process that takes place every time there are changes in the DNS records of a domain around the world. During this period, your website or VPS server may not be accessible from all devices, or may appear as unstable or insecure to you and to your users. It can take up to 48 hours or sometimes even reaching 72 hours to complete. The solution is to use your IP address to access your server temporarily, or wait until it is completed before doing anything.
Latency is the term used to describe the delay between user command and server response. On TeamTalk, it can be observed by measuring how long it takes for someone you are talking to to react to what you are saying. Around 30ms is acceptable for voice communication, while more than 300ms is considerably bad. If you’re in the Philippines, you must choose datacenters which are located within Asia as much as possible such as Singapore.
