What do you call the www. part of a website name?

Recommended Posts

The answers. part is a subdomain of groovypost.com

You may also see something like answers.groovypost.com/answers

the /answers part points to a directory withing the groovpost.com domain

 

Correct. Subdomains are used to separate different parts of a website for various purposes. Because a subdomain also is technically a different domain from the rot domain (answers.groovypost.com vs. groovypost.com), it will have a seperate DNS name and therefore a different IP address if desired.

This makes it very nice if you want to spread your website over multiple websites or even hosts/data centers for that matter.

      I use a windows 7 Home Premiun and I would create a virtual network using the microsoft loopback adapter. I already create this network but when I enable it I got an error message "unidentify network " my question is how to fix this problem ....help please....

      I'm not too knowledgeable about networking and routers. Pretty much all I know is how to set up a router to create a wireless network, and that's all I've been using it for currently. I like playing games online (most notably League of Legends), and living with a big family on an 'ok' internet connection just won't cut it. For example, I'll start playing a game, and then someone else will start watching Netflix, making my game virtually unplayable.
      A friend mentioned about using router firmware to create a stable ping. He didn't really know much on the topic, but it sparked my curiosity. Is this even possible? And if so, will it have any negative effects to other users on the network. (Essentially, can I play my game on a playable ping without being an internet hog?)
      League of Legends Support led me to something about QoS, but as I read further into the article it seems it's about prioritizing bandwidth? (Again, I don't want to be an internet hog)
      Any insight into this topic would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      When I try to login to my router at 192.168.1.1 it accepts my username and password but just displays the message " (192.168.1.2) is managing this device " with a blank white screen, nothing else is visible. Is there anyway to fix this? I can't access my router control panel because of this.

      I'm in the market for a good WIFI router/switch/repeater. Looking for something with at least 5 1Gig ports and the ability to repeat/extend the signal to another Access Point which is up stairs so i don't need to run wired Ethernet to the other side of the house.
      Looking online, This Western Digital N900 looks nice however it doesn't appear to have the repeater functionality.
      Anyone buy anything recently which is working out well? Or got a tip on something out there?
      Thnx
