Mail server

Everything You Need to Know About Mail Servers

Mail servers, also sometimes known as email servers, are the computers on the Internet that send and receive email. Without a mail server email would only work within a single domain. A mail server is like a mailman. It takes messages and sends them onto the next place they need to go and a mail server also makes sure users get the email addressed to them. There are outgoing and incoming mail servers and each works differently.

Outgoing Mail Servers

When you send an email you use a SMTP mail server. SMTP stands for simple mail transfer protocol. The SMTP server looks at the email address you are sending to, and consults a series of databases to translate that email address into the IP address of the computer who hosts that address’s mail server. Once the destination is located the text of the message and any attachments are translated into code and sent off to the correct destination. All of this occurs so rapidly, that to humans it often appears instantaneous.

Incoming Mail Servers

When email is received an incoming mail server has to translate the email back into a format readable by the user and, depending on the type of mail server and the specific user settings, it will hold the email and wait until it is asked for or it will push the email to the user.

There are two types of incoming mail servers, the POP3 and the IMAP.

POP3 stands for post office protocol version 3. This type of mail server typically does not store copies of emails on the server, but instead pushed the emails to the user’s machine where the email copies are stored.

IMAP stands for Internet message access protocol. This type of mail server always stores copies of email on the mail server. IF you read and receive emails on multiple machines, like a work computer, a home computer, and a smart phone, an IMAP mail server will be better to organize your emails and make sure emails are not accidentally lost.

Mail servers can also serve important security functions. Mail servers can be programmed to monitor certain types of suspicious email activity often associated with spammers. If thousands of emails are suddenly being sent in very short bursts, a mail server can blacklist an account and keep it from sending the emails.

Minecraft videogame online and servers

What Makes Minecraft so Popular?

Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the past several years, you have at least heard of Minecraft. The game is taking over popular culture and is influencing the way game makers think about their creations. Minecraft doesn’t have cutting edge graphics. Instead, part of its charm is the pixilated blocks that make up the Minecraft landscape. The game doesn’t even really have a story, and that is why it is so popular.

Minecraft Basics

Minecraft Pocket Edition serverMinecraft has two different modes: Survival Mode and Create Mode. In Survival Mode you have to use your wits to protect yourself from the elements, from Creepers, and from the other players. Creepers are mindless zombies that wander the game looking to kill. You can create fortresses, weapons, and traps to defend yourself and to ensnare your enemies.

In Create Mode, you cannot die. Instead of waging war, your only job is to create anything you can imagine. Depending on the version you are playing, you can even create automated devices powered by the rare Redstone that can be mined deep down in the Minecraft soil.

You Write the Story. Create Your World

Unlike many other video games where you are just a player in someone else’s story, in Minecraft everything is about you. You are writing the story and creating the world as you go along. Unlike other games where you may only have a few directions to choose from, in Minecraft you can do anything. You can cut down trees, dig a mine, run, swim, grow crops, kill enemies, or anything else you can think of.

Minecraft does not lead you forward towards anything. Instead, you decide what shape the world takes. It is the only game where you conquer your enemies by making your own weapons, building your own traps, leading Creepers to your enemy’s, base, or starting a massive wildfire that engulfs entire sections of the map, consuming everyone and everything in its path. If fire is not your style, you could always create a massive flood. It all depends on your ability to create and build.

Perfect for Playing With Others

minecraft01Minecraft is the ultimate party game. A game can last as long as you want.

Five Minute TTL DNS server Registration

Darwin’s Five-Minute DNS Registration

If you you’ve spent any amount of time building and creating websites you are used to having to wait for 24 hours for your new site to go live. But, with everything happening digitally, why does it take so long for your site become active? Shouldn’t the Internet be faster by now?

The answer is most domain hosts are still using slow DNS servers. This means it takes longer for your domain information to register. Your domain name and site IP address have to be registered through DNS servers before anyone in the world can access your site. Did you know that Darwin can get your site live in just five minutes?

How DNS Works

DNS has been around as long as the Internet itself. Machines understand numbers. Websites are actually each assigned a unique number known as an IP address. When the right number is given to a computer it knows where on the Internet to find the files to show you on your browser when you are looking for a website.

virtual dedicated server, darwin servers.But, most of us cannot remember long strings of numbers. Why remember 74.125.224.72 when you can just remember Google.com instead?

DNS stands for domain name system.

It translates handles like Google.com that are easy for humans to remember into the long strings of IP addresses that are easy for machines to use to sort and organize the files we need to make the Internet usable.

When you create a new website you buy a domain name or “handle” that you are authorized to use for your website. But, before your site can go live the IP address where your files physically reside have to be registered and associated with your domain name in the DNS servers.

Virtually every other hosting company in the world requires you to wait for a full day before the DNS registration can be resolved.

But, what if there was a fast way?
