Database

A collection of data in one file.
 

Deactivation

When a domain name is deactivated, it will no longer have the information needed to translate it into it's corresponding IP address, meaning that a website will no longer be available and computers will not be able to "find" the name.
 

Deletion

The process of a domain name being deleted from they domain name database. Users will no longer be able to locate the domain on the Internet and it will be released for sale by other parties.
 

DHCP

DHTML

(Dynamic HyperText Markup Language) Refers to web pages that use a combination of HTML, JavaScript, and CSS.
 

Disk Space

Refers to the amount of space you are assigned on the web server. Contrary to what one might expect, the average Web Site takes up less than 10 megs of space.
 

Disk Transfer

Refers to the amount of bandwidth your web site uses. Typically, the more bandwidth you use, the more traffic you're receiving (so that's a good thing!).
 

DNS

(Domain Name System) Every computer on the Internet has a unique address - just like a telephone number - which is a rather complicated string of numbers called an IP address. Simply put, DNS makes using the Internet easier by allowing a familiar string of letters (the "Domain Name") to be used instead of the IP address.
 

Domain Appraisal

An evaluation carried out to establish the potential market value of a domain name.
 

Domain Name

A Domain name is a textual mark used as a form of identification on the Internet. When used in conjunction with online services, domain names are easy to remember, easy to type alternatives to the real address of computers on the Internet which consists of a string of numbers (see IP address).
