This preview shows page 1 - 3 out of 4 pages.

Discussion Question 1: Describe how to deploy a website and make it as secure as possible while reducing its resources used. Discussion Question 2: You are the administrator for the contoso.com site. Recently, the server hosting the corporate websites had a failure that caused the server to go down for a short period of time while the server was being fixed. In the future, you need to take steps to avoid any hardware failure that would cause the websites to go down. Describe your recommended course of action. Would clustering be an option here? Why or why not? Discussion Question 1 There are three general scenarios of a website deployment. First website for client The client already has hosting and you will be deploying the site on their server The client already has hosting, but you will be moving to a new server Depending on the scenario will determine what you need to do to actually get the site deployed. General Deployment Checklist 1. Have access to DNS record management or know the people to contact 2. Set up the DNS records and make sure that all the settings are correct 3. Set up and test the website on the production server 4. Set up email 5. Back the old site (if applicable) and deploy the new one Step 1: Preparation If you are dealing with scenario 1, then all you need to do is register their domain name and purchase or provide web hosting. Scenarios 2 and 3 require some information gathering. You need domain management credentials for the existing web host so that you can manage the DNS records. If the client has no idea what the domain management credentials are then you will need to do some digging. You can use a tool like whois.domaintools.com to find out
some information about the existing domain name. You should take note of the various contact email addresses, especially the administrative and technical contact.
