I definitely want to know how my application gets aired on internet.

Welcome to CodeSpread! In the client facing environment , I have got used of requests like that from clients.These situations require considerable amount of time to think and before saying something,precaution should be taken to avoid any technical pitfalls. Any technical word and client will lose the interest in the topic. I have written one article where URL is explained and that will get you acquainted with regular terminologies. The basic explanation can be, after site development, site is hosted on a server and mapped to a domain name. Just enter the domain name/ url on the address bar of your browser and site will start appearing. Simple? Understood? if answer is yes then you bumped into a wrong category,please try our ‘technical’ series or ‘How to’ series. In ‘Imagine’ category, We are very much dedicated to our users who have their answer as ‘No’ and serve them a more simpler solution. When website development is over, we have to host it on a server so what’s this hosting? I have a scenario which is very much similar to our situation, When we visit a restaurant for a buffet lunch/dinner then we behave like a client and restaurant owner is our host. In our website hosting situation, ‘buffet’ is similar to our website which is available on our hosting server,’restaurant’. It is served to the client like us when we visit the restaurant like, as a user, when we punch the website URL/domain name on the browser, the site is available. This URL is restaurant name which we have visited. I am writing from quite some time about applying creativity and imagination to explain something technical to a non-technical people especially clients and i find it really difficult to satisfy all the sections of readers/listeners. But If i can really get minimum 1% of satisfied reader, then it would surely...

What is taxonomy?

I have heard this question so many times from my clients,my managers,my developers that it became really necessary for me to explain it here. But the challenge remains the same. Explain in a language which they can understand. Let’s begin with some background, Taxonomy was adopted in any kind of development project to simplify things but as it is not clearly understood by anyone, at least in the first go, so we would rather mark it as a complex term and I will try my best to simplify it. We create directories, sub-directories and place our files in one of the directories or sub-directories. As an exercise, Create one folder/directory with the name ‘Shopping-Cart’. Open this folder, and create few folders inside it which are our sub-directories. Name them as like ‘Clothes’,’Electronics’,’Furniture’ etc. These sub-directories might contains another layer of sub-directories or files inside them. For example: ‘Clothes’ folder might contain folders like ‘Shirts’,’t-Shirts’ etc. These folders might contain the files like ‘Shirts’ folder contains ‘Shirt1.html’,’Shirt2.html’ If I have to reach out to Shirt1.html then i must give my address in browser as: http:\\\www.codespread.com\\shoppping-cart\\clothes\\shirts\\shirt1.html   [Not an active url] where www.codespread.com is my domain-name. For more info on domain-name,Read here Easy Right? But if i tell you that my file ‘shirt1.html’ was physically located directly under Shopping-Cart folder and there are NO other physical folders apart from it, like ‘Clothes’, ‘Shirts’ which i have mentioned in the bullet points earlier. Hurray!!! That means my URL will tell the logical address of my file, which is easy to understand as this is the hierarchy we expect while looking for our file. But actually my file will be physically located somewhere else. This logical address of our file is referred or called as Taxonomy. Hope i was able to help...
