IPv4 IPv6

IPv4 and IPv6 are two different versions of Internet protocol (IP). For that reason, it is important to understand what are the differences between them. So, let’s explain a little bit more!

Internet Protocol (IP) – What is it?

Internet protocol, or as we know it, more popular as IP, establishes a group of communication rules which control the format of the information transferred among the networks or the Internet. 

Thanks to the IP, it is easy to set the most suitable structures for packets to transport data until they are delivered. In addition, it includes several methods for addressing, and it routes datagrams across networks. Therefore, the transportation of data packets from their origin to their target destination depends on IP addresses.

When it comes to connections on the Internet, it is crucial to know who is requesting some data and who is supposed to provide the information, like routers, websites, servers, Internet of Things, and so on. IP addresses serve for identifying and connecting with the machines, devices, servers. That makes it possible to achieve communication and exchange of information.

TXT record

Domain Name System (DNS) includes many different records to execute different functions required for the Internet to work as easily and efficiently as users expect.

TXT records’ functionality is absolutely essential. Check out why to use TXT record.

What is the TXT record?

Text or TXT record is a DNS record that holds text information related to a domain for external sources to read it. TXT records commonly have general information about a domain and important data frequently used for validating (security processes). They can validate information for e-mailing or for confirming if you really are the owner of a domain.

When created, the TXT record was for administrators’ notes. But machines have evolved through the years, and such text notes are also legible for them. This is very convenient for administrators because using TXT records, they can send text entries into the DNS, with specific instructions for machines to accomplish.

Domain Name System

The time before the Domain Name System

A long, long time ago, there was no Internet! Can you believe it? Back then, there were just a few university computers and some military ones linked together through different networks. They were working together, but with a lot of connection problems. The number of the devices started to grow, so did the connection between them. 

Back then, each of the computers needed to have a hosts.txt file on their memory, which was basically a table with hosts’ names and their IP addresses. Like a table of A records, but of all possible devices that are there. 

Imagine having to administrate a massive excel table with all the sites that you want to visit and their addresses. A lot of work! 

The hosts.txt was not a viable option, so there was a need for a better system for that new thing called the World Wide Web. This is where the Domain Name System came.

What is TLD (Top Level Domain)

TLD means Top Level Domain, and it’s the suffix of a domain name.

A domain name is built with three parts, each one separated by a dot. The subdomain is on the left side. The second-level domain (SLD), brand, or a name that states the kind of business you have, comes in the middle. And the top-level domain (TLD) is at the end (.com, gov, .org, .net, .de).

Example: www.speaking-easy.com, “www” is the subdomain, “speaking-easy” the SLD, and “.com”, the TLD.
