Virtual domain
« on: January 26, 2016, 12:07:09 AM »
 Virtual domain is the domain of the client on which they can run their applications without having to install the server or hardware.

- The software need not to be installed physically on the server as it can be done using the local repositories and maintaining the domain locally.

- Using the virtual domain the server storage space is utilized efficiently and the data can be made more secure before publishing it online.

- Virtual domains are used to represent the personal Internet web address domain name and can be made with your personal one.

- Virtual domain provides more security in terms of using your own personalized domain and allows the access to the resources that are on web.

Virtual hosting is a method for hosting multiple domain names (with separate handling of each name) on a single server (or pool of servers). This allows one server to share its resources, such as memory and processor cycles, without requiring all services provided to use the same host name. The term virtual hosting is usually used in reference to web servers but the principles does carry over to other internet services.

One widely used application is shared web hosting. Shared web hosting prices are lower than a dedicated web server because many customers can be hosted on a single server. It is also very common for a single entity to want to use multiple names on the same machine so that the names can reflect services offered rather than where those services happen to be hosted.

There are two main types of virtual hosting, name-based and IP-based. Name-based virtual hosting uses the host name presented by the client. This saves IP addresses and the associated administrative overhead but the protocol being served must supply the host name at an appropriate point. In particular, there are significant difficulties using name-based virtual hosting with SSL/TLS. IP-based virtual hosting uses a separate IP address for each host name, and it can be performed with any protocol but requires a dedicated IP address per domain name served. Port-based virtual hosting is also possible in principle but is rarely used in practice because it is unfriendly to users.

Name-based and IP-based virtual hosting can be combined: a server may have multiple IP addresses and serve multiple names on some or all of those IP addresses. This technique can be useful when using SSL/TLS with wildcard certificates. For example, if a server operator had two certificates, one for * and one for *, he could serve and off the same IP address but would need a separate IP address for

Frequently the term Domain is used instead of Virtual Domain, and a lot of people use the two terms interchangeably. If you want to be picky, then "domain" should only be used when an entire server is dedicated to one IP number and one domain, and "virtual domain" when many domain names share the same IP number

A virtual domain is almost identical to a normal full domain, with the exception that it does not require any additional IP addresses to be added to the GMS Server.
