Protect a server about network is so important, if you use LINUX OS it’s better to get help from expert guy’s to configure it but in windows server firewall solved this problem. There are two types of servers, VDS and VPS, continue watching as I explain
VDS | VPS
The difference between VDS or virtual dedicated server and VPS, virtual private server is just in your ownership. In dedicated server you are owned all of the server and you can even make some VPS from one VDS (Hyper-visor). Usually using VPS reduce the cost, because it’s shared between some clients.
Second question, what is domain?
Domain or website name is an address for calling your website on the internet, when you buy a domain name, you are the owner for 1 year and you can park your domain on a host, VPS or VDS. And when it expires the ownership keep save for you until two month. TIP: Shorter and Conceptual domain name help your customers to remember you better and reduce the cost of branding campaign.
DNS & IP
DNS or domain name server connect your domain to the server or host, there is common setting in your domain and host that named DNS and specify the relation between this items. If you use server (VDS or VPS) In addition to set DNS you must set your server IP to your DNS setting or you must set private name server for your domain.
