Almost every application utilises databases in one form or another. Besides classic relational databases, document-oriented databases have also become well-established in the course of the development of web apps. Instead of working with complex tables, these document stores use semi-structured data in simple documents. But how exactly does this work?
A working database system is pivotal to maintaining any computer-based system. The central body that regulates the respective data pools here is always a Database Management System (DBMS). The software structures and organises the data available in the database, and also manages writing and reading permissions for the database system.
MySQL is the most used database management system in the world. This open source software has been available for productive use since 1995 and is generally considered a standard solution for users of relational databases. This could change in the near future. MariaDB, a community-developed fork of MySQL is catching up on its predecessor and is consequently becoming an increasingly attractive...
A wide array of database models exists, each one with its own advantages and disadvantages. Key Value Stores, for example, provide lightning-quick results because they follow such a simple principle. A key is saved to each value. There are no more specifications. These Key Value Databases are used principally in website design.

The Domain Name System and name resolution enable hassle-free surfing for users on the World Wide Web. Here, the DNS has recourse to several types of resource records. One of these is CNAME. This allows different domains to be linked together with one IP address. But how do CNAME records work and how can you check the records?
PTR records turn the DNS on its head: Instead of getting from a domain name to the corresponding IP address – as is normally the case – with reverse DNS the opposite occurs. Which domains belong to an IP address? You can acquire this information using PTR records, which are a special type of DNS record. How do the DNS records need to be structured for this?
The Domain Name System enables the use of domain names for surfing and is based on zone files. These in turn are made up of different records. The first DNS entry you encounter in such a data file is always the SOA record. This determines authority within the zone. We explain how the records are designed and how you can perform an SAO record check.
The Domain Name System makes it easy for every user to navigate the internet. One of its most important components are A records, which link a domain name to an individual IP address. Only a line of text is needed. But what does this kind of record look like, and how can you perform an A record check?
Are you still transferring your data online over an unencrypted connection via FTP (File Transfer Protocol)? WinSCP offers a comfortable and secure alternative to the current FTP client programs for the operating system, Windows. The encrypted network connection is based on the implementation of Secure Shell (SHH) and enables a fast data transfer via SCP (Secure Copy) and the flexible remote...
