Domain Name Management
Domain management, or domain name management, refers to the ongoing tasks of keeping a personal or corporate domain (or domains) stable, secure, and able to support related websites. The domain name not only establishes its owner’s presence on the Internet, it also serves as a portal to a business or personal website designed to serve that owner’s unique needs. Site owners may be tempted to focus all their attention on setting up and maintaining the website itself, but managing the domain is a key factor in keeping the website live and accessible.
Once the name is picked, all you need to do is register it either with an independent registrar or a web hosting company for a term of one or multiple years. Once registered, the name is assigned to a host’s primary and secondary nameservers, which point the domain to a website.
Many registrars recommend buying as many related domain names as possible to keep them from being used by competitors and to capture all possible variants that might be typed in during a search—including misspellings. That can result in a large portfolio of domain names, some of which may never be used. Whether a user buys one domain or many, though, ongoing management keeps them updated and working to support the websites they serve.
Domain management tools and services can help keep domains secure and stable, long after they’re purchased and registered.
Responsive Website Development
Responsive web design is an approach whereby a designer creates a web page that “responds to” or resizes itself depending on the type of device it is being seen through. That could be an oversized desktop computer monitor, a laptop or devices with small screens such as smartphones and tablets.
With the popularity of smartphones, tablets and other mobile computing devices, people are using smaller screens to view webpages. Responsive Web design has become an essential tool for anyone with a digital presence.
