        Web Hosting Plan Reviews
         12 definitions to know
         Web hosting plan reviews, like those featured on this site,
bring with them their own unique set of technical phrases. As a matter
of fact, there is an entire language dedicated to the hosting field.
This short glossary will provide you with some brief definitions you
should know as you begin your search for a web hosting service. Keep
in mind that this is not an all inclusive list, but a starting place
to help you put new information into context. 
Internet Protocol (IP) Number: IP addresses that identify hosts,
networks, and your computer, much like your house address is used to
identify your city, street, and house number. 
Domain Name: Title and address of your website.
URL (Uniform Resource Locator): The standard way an address is
presented on the internet. The first part indicates what protocol to
use and the second part specifies a domain name. (e.g.
"aol.com") 
Server: A computer or software system that allows other computers to
store information on it and use its resources. 
Host: A company that uses servers to connect domain names to internet
protocol numbers. This enables your domain name to be called up in
internet searches. There are a variety of types of hosts around, each
with their own web hosting plan and offers.
ASP (Active Server Pages): A Windows-based specification that allows
web developers to create dynamic sites with database driven content.
The server reads the ASP code, translates it into HTML, and sends it
back to the browser. The website owner relies on it to ensure that all
visitors are able to view the site's dynamic content. PHP is a similar
specification used by Linux servers. Your web hosting plan determines
which one you will use. Click here to read more about ASP Hosting 
 
          

 

 

          
Internet Service Provider (ISP): A company that offers internet
access. Users dial up through a modem, DSL, or cable connection and
then move through web pages with their browser.
Audio Streaming: This feature provides the audio content of a website.
Since it takes up quite a bit of bandwidth, it may not be included in
the web hosting plan you are looking at. Find out before you make a
commitment that will exclude a needed item. 
Bandwidth: The amount of data that runs through an internet
connection. Larger sites need a web hosting plan that offers more
bandwidth than a smaller one does. Pricing structures vary, so you'll
want to find out how much it will cost if you suddenly need to add
more to your site.
Common Gateway Interface (CGI): A program that translates data from a
web server to a readable format in the web browser. It can be used for
visitor registration, guestbooks, technical help, and more. Many web
hosts offer prewritten versions of CGI scripts. 
Encrypted Password: A password that has been camouflaged to prevent
hackers from entering a site area registered to an identify other than
their own. Look for this feature in the security features of your
chosen web hosting plan.
