Share: Domain Name

A domain name is a website URL, is the address, is your website name where Internet users can find and visit your website. Computers use IP addresses, which are a series of number. However, it is difficult for people to remember. Because of this, domain names were developed and used to identify entities on the Internet rather than using IP addresses.   A domain name can be any combination of letters and numbers, and it can be used in combination of the various extensions, such as .com, .net and more.   The domain name must be registered before you can use it.

Share: Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

2FA works by adding an extra layer of security to your account. It requires an extra login credential to gain account access, and getting that second credential requires access to something you own, something you are or something you know. For example fingerprint. Common 2FA methods: 1. Text Message - Receive a login code (SMS). 2. 2FA Application - Mobile application that generates an authentication code. 3. Bio-metric - This method requires you to physically present something to gain access to your account. Common methods of bio-metric verification include retina scans and fingerprint. An account that uses 2FA is much more secure than a mere username and password login, but that doesn’t mean it is 100% safe.You may lose access if you lose your phone or unable to receive the login code if your phone number is inactive. Mobile number portability is an opening for hackers to impersonate you and switch your number. Others may be able to use or access to your device (apps) when
