Chapter 9 Highlights-3 Facts Learned

 Assignment 7 After reading Chapter  (Webpage design), post 3 facts learned. 

Fact 1. I learned there are three main types of Markup Languages, and they are HTML(Hypertext Markup Language), XML( Extensible Markup Language ), and XHTML(  Extensible Hypertext Markup Language).

Fact 2. There are three types of browser extensions. The first one is called a plug-in, it finds integrated browser software to run a specific files. The second one is called a helper application, it runs software installed on computer. Lastly the third one is called an add-on, it is on the browser and it allows a user to go directly to the website without opening another window.

Fact 3. Web Hosting Services are part of the Webpage implementation. They allow the user to use their server to obtain a domain name, and they store the webpages of the user so that they can be accessed from the Internet. I started a website because JTCC give me an email account with Google. I login and Google asked me if I want to start making a webpage I said yes, and I opened up a template and made a simple website. Google was hosting the site through my school email account. The site was O.K. but I wanted to be able to find it on bing. So I went to and purchased A domain name for $10.00 per year.  Google transferred it and hosted it with 50 email accounts and 77 gigbytes of ram for free. I could go on on about what extras I have added. So if you are interested here the link to my Peace, this Blog was made for my ITE 130 Class at JTCC which is coming to an end. So after this post there will most likely be a change of topic here, unless I get followers who want to know about the Internet.

Chapter 8 Highlights-3 Facts Learned

Assignment 6 After reading Chapter 8 (Wireless Networking), post 3 facts learned.

Fact1. A wireless local area network (WLAN) is the most common type of wireless network, and the 4 most common network standards are 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n.

Fact 2. Wireless mesh networks are used to extend the range of Wi-Fi hot spots. I have just leaned how to use mesh-up in regards to Social Media and it is very powerful there so I imagine it works like 3^3 not 3+3 or 3*3.

Fact 3. Wireless security is very important especially depending on what kind of information is stored on a mobile device or that is being transferred. If I was doing online banking or communicating classified information there would be a reason to have the most secure connection possible, but since I have decided that I will do those things in person I am not worried about it now.However,  I did learn how  take a few simple steps to protect most mobile devices in my domains.
  1. Change default login and password of router.
  2. Change default SSID.
  3. Use MAC addresses.
  4. Turn on MAC filtering.
  5. If using WEP, change Passphrase often.
  6. Make sure all devices are connected before step 7.
  7. Disable the SSID of the router.
  8. Turn it off when not in use for a while.
