Always read the small print and ask to see copies of the terms and conditions for domain name registration as well as your right to move across to another ISP if you are unhappy.
There are some online packages and ISPs that will offer you a domain name for free such as Microsoft’s Office Live. Once you have decided upon the company who is going to register your name, the process is generally swift and painless.
If your registration is accepted the company you have chosen will set up a domain name system (DNS) entry. Once these stages are complete you are alive and kicking on the internet and are able to use your name.
Prices will vary, depending on what your business needs, but there is an average price you will pay for single domain name registration. Assuming that you have a portfolio of names, approximately 10, you may need the services of a domain name manager. If you are ready to purchase your domain name or website address you can do so by following this link?
Jive Software is considered the #1 social business provider by analysts, customers and the marketplace. Microsoft brought back most of the legacy Start Menu functionality, and now you can pick and choose the elements that work best for you.
One of the loudest, and most persistent complaints about Windows 8 has been the fate of the Start button — and along with it, the Start Menu. That's where things start to get fun, though, because you can actually make the Start Menu look and act just about any way you like. Conversely, you can pin as many tiles as you like (within the limitations of the screen real estate you have to work with), and the right pane will automatically expand to accommodate them. Microsoft’s Surface Pro is designed to deliver an enterprise-class user experience in a tablet form factor.
To answer this question, I tested how well the tablet integrates into an existing Windows domain. It’s clear, however, that for business networks with Windows domains deployed, the Surface Pro is the most compatible ultraportable device there is. I tested Surface Pro by stepping through some of the more common administrative Windows domain tasks a network admin would perform with any business client.

Of course, you have to connect Surface Pro to your Windows network in order to join it to a domain.
Yet, the main purpose of a tablet is to travel light, so I connected the Surface Pro wirelessly to my network. As with a Windows desktop, Windows 8 on Surface Pro has the native firewall on by default, so you’ll need to make an exception to allow the tablet to join the domain. I joined the Surface Pro to my domain and then logged in as a typical domain user, meaning no domain admin permissions. I can see this welcome screen as a potential inconvenience for a user who may already have a Surface tablet set up.
After joining my domain I did notice some lag while browsing shared folders on the network. As with a domain user logged into a workstation, domain policies associated with user accounts flowed to the Surface Pro.
Oddly, Windows on the Surface Pro popped up a message that Paint’s publisher (Microsoft) could not be verified! Remote App is a good way for Surface Pro users to run heavy processing applications like video editors or CAD that would likely run slowly locally, provided they have a speedy connection to the Remote App server, of course. Storage Spaces is another business-class feature in Windows 8 on the Surface Pro, and another feature I believe many users will find handy. BitLocker is another business-class feature, allowing Surface Pro users to secure data on the tablet using AES encryption.
Fortunately, using Group Policy in Server 2012, administrators can control BitLocker access. These are just a few of the many capabilities of a Surface Pro tablet integrated with a Windows domain.

Some companies offer domain registration, others include free web space and email addresses or more specialist options. If you don’t register with an ISP there are around 6,000 companies who have domain registration facilities.
Once this is done, the company will then send a template of your registered domain name to the network information centre (NIC). Essentially, this means assigning your name to a name server that collates and keeps all registered names so that your domain can be found on the internet.
Some are cheaper than others and it often depends on what other services are included (for example, registration fees and support service fees). For just over ?100 we can almost instantaneously register, manage and give you updates on the names you own, when they are up for renewal and who owns the names you want to own. While the company moved its corporate headquarters to Palo Alto, California in 2010, Jive Software maintains a strong presence in Portland with a mass of its 400 full-time employees based here. In fact, if you actually like the Windows 8 Start Screen (which I do), you can choose to revert to the Windows 8 method.
I can definitely say that whatever business features a desktop client running Windows 7 Professional or Windows 8 can run, the Surface Pro can run, too. Here are my observations and tips on integrating Surface Pro with specific Windows domain features.

Since this was the user’s first time logging into the domain with the Surface Pro, the tablet went through that initial Windows 8 welcome screen which shows users how to move the mouse around and other orientation tips.
They have to take the tablet into the office, log into the network, and then have to go through the orientation again.
Of course, I was connected wirelessly, and there is a lot of Wi-Fi interference in my testing space.
I have my domain set up to auto-create a user’s home directory, and to map a drive to a publicly shared folder upon first login.
This is a Windows Server feature (introduced in Server 2008 and honed in Server 2012) that allows administrators to publish applications to an IIS server for end users to access remotely. From the Surface Pro, I was easily able to browse to the URL I set up for end users to access applications.
Yet, I could still open Paint remotely and use it on the tablet as well as the locally installed Paint app. Because tablets are shuttled between personal and business use, a tablet owner may have many passwords and usernames to remember. With Storage Spaces, you can add an external USB drive to the Surface Pro and create a storage pool either to extend your storage capacity (the Surface Pro comes with a 128GB SSD) or to create a mirror to protect data stored on the local drive. I wanted to test this feature out because domain administrators may not want to give users with Surface Pro tablets connected to the network the ability to encrypt the tablet’s drive. For example, you can give domain users the ability to only use BitLocker on their own removable USB drives, or disable the feature altogether. Excerpts and links may be used, provided that full and clear credit AND link of actual article is given to StartupsHK with appropriate and specific direction to the original content. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

Each country has its own NIC, which is a centre where all the details of registered domains are held. The process usually takes up to 24 hours, but could take between two and three days (depending on your provider). Now, you have the power to customize the Start experience as you see fit.The Windows logo existed on the taskbar at the bottom left of the desktop mode in Windows 8 as well, but tapping or clicking it would just toggle back and forth from the desktop to the tiled Modern UI Windows 8 Start Screen. First of all, you can drag the top of the Start Menu up or down to control how tall it should be. He writes regularly for Forbes, and PCWorld, and contributes to a wide variety of online and print media outlets. I was more concerned when Surface Pro simply froze on me when I tried to turn on the Network Discovery feature. I saw the appropriate folders and mappings on the Surface Pro after logging in as a domain user. I tested connectivity by simply publishing Microsoft’s Paint app to my server and then accessing it from the Surface Pro. The feature runs well on Surface Pro and, of course, is a capability of Windows 8, not Surface Pro. Windows system administrators will find the Surface Pro tablet as easy to integrate into a domain as any workstation. She's fascinated by consumer behavior and creative brands that have mastered the art of impactful storytelling. Sydney graduated from University of California, Berkeley with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. When she’s not busy reading TechCrunch, she also volunteers her time as a board member for an LGBT nonprofit called GO!
Once you have registered with an ISP, they will then submit the application to Nominet, ensuring a more thorough and secure process.
Right-clicking the Windows logo "Start Button" in Windows 8.1 also provided access to many functions found in the pre-Windows 8 Start Menu. You can stretch it to the top of your display for a tall, thin Start Menu — or squish it down toward the task bar for a stocky, wide Start Menu.
He has authored or co-authored a number of books, including Unified Communications for Dummies, Essential Computer Security, and PCI Compliance.
And the on-screen keyboard only pops open automatically when tapping text fields within the Windows 8 modern interface. I see Remote App as a great way for Surface Pro users to access line-of-business apps that admins may not want to install locally on a tablet. The company went public on December 12, 2011 and is currently traded on the NASDAQ exchange (JIVE) at a market capitalization of more than $700 million. This is particularly useful if you'd like to stretch the Start Menu up so that more application shortcuts are displayed in the left pane.When it comes to the tiles on the right pane, you have a number of options.
The Windows 10 Start Menu, however, is a sort of Frankenstein mashup of the traditional Start Menu and the Windows 8 Start Screen all at once.
Personally, I never understood the whining about the Start button or the Start Menu, and I think the Start Screen works just fine once you get used to it and arrange the tiles the way you want them.
The left panel looks and acts like the Start Menu in older versions of Windows — with shortcut links to favorite and recently used applications, plus a link you can click to surf through all of the installed applications and launch whatever you like. Even so, it was a bit of a one-size-fits-all — or more precisely, an our-size-fits-all — approach, and I can see the benefits of the Windows 10 system.
