General Web Hosting / why is nginx used
« on: April 27, 2023, 06:54:48 AM »
NGINX is a web server that can also function as a reverse proxy, load balancer, and HTTP cache. Here are some common uses for NGINX:

1. Serving static content: NGINX can efficiently serve static files, such as images, videos, and HTML pages.

2.Load balancing: NGINX can distribute incoming traffic across multiple servers, helping to increase reliability and handle higher traffic loads.

3.Reverse proxying: NGINX can act as a reverse proxy, routing incoming traffic to different backend servers based on various criteria, such as URL path or domain name.

4.Caching: NGINX can cache frequently requested content, reducing the load on backend servers and improving overall performance.
5.SSL/TLS termination: NGINX can terminate SSL/TLS connections and handle certificate management, offloading this responsibility from backend servers.

6.API gateway: NGINX can act as an API gateway, providing a centralized entry point for accessing multiple APIs and managing authentication, rate limiting, and other features.

Overall, NGINX is a versatile tool that can help improve the performance, reliability, and security of web applications and services.

General Web Hosting / What is an MX record, and How it Works?
« on: March 14, 2023, 10:23:15 AM »
MX record or mail exchanges record is basically a type of DNS record that specifies the mail server responsible for accepting email messages on behalf of the particular domain.

When someone sends an email message to an email address associated with a specific domain, the sending mail server looks up the MX records associated with that domain to determine the destination of the mail server. The MX records the information about the mail server's hostname that receives the email message.

 Let me tell you step by step how an MX record works
1. First of all, the email sender's mail server queries the DNS for the MX record of the recipient's domain. The query is sent to the DNS server that is responsible for the recipient's domain.

2. Now, the DNS server will respond with the MX records for the domain, which basically includes the hostname and priority of mail servers that are responsible for handling email for that domain.

3. Then, the email sender's mail server attempts to connect to the highest priority of the mail servers and then sends the email to the server. If the first server is not available, it tries the next server in the list, and so on, until it successfully delivers the email or runs out of servers to try.

4. After that, the recipient's mail server receives the email and then processes it according to its own configuration, such as checking for spam or virus filters before delivering it to the recipient's mailbox.

This was the complete process of the MX record.
