Developer: Developers are website development professionals. Developers build websites, maintain websites, and repair websites. CanTrust requires that all websites have a developer assigned to conduct maintenance for your website. Here is our list of recommended developers that we like to work with.
Devops: The relationship and integration of development and your operations, often your overall IT operations. This can include managing your domains, connecting your email accounts, and other operational items. DevOps is outside of CanTrust’s scope of work and service offerings.
DNS: Domain Name system. The thing that converts a name like “example.com” to an IP address like 188.8.131.52 so that your computer can actually get there. DNS is essential when moving websites (we need into the customer’s DNS panel to change the site). It is also sometimes something we host for a customer, though we try and avoid that at all costs!
Dom0: A hypervisor (see “hypervisor”)
DomU: A virtual machine aka a VPS aka a “guest OS” . (see “hypervisor” above). DomU’s are virtual servers where we run customer services like websites, nextcloud, etc. It’s also how we run our big shared webservers (ctwebXX)
