Technically speaking computer networking can be defined as a bunch of computers that are linked up together, preferably through a hard wire connection. If a network is properly configured, it acts as a system that provides unique capabilities, to its users. The benefits of computer networking offers its users the ability for sharing resources and information between other workstations. Most businesses run off in house servers that connects and links unlimited number of workstations together. Computers which are connected to a workgroup network are connected through a local area network. Sharing of data is commonly used through in house networks, which helps save a lot of time and energy. This also simplifies the use of applications such as databases that help individuals to access and share data. There are two types of computer networking that are being used in small to corporate level businesses. The differences between the two types of networks are listed below.
WorkGroup Computer Networking
In a workgroup based network, every computer has its own username and password to log on to the local machine that is managed by the user themselves. This means that the user is in control of access to their workstation, and they may choose to use a weak password or even no password at all. This can be a serious security concern as user workstations usually have sensitive information on them. Virus protection can get out of hand in workgroup based networks of more than a few computers. This is mainly because people don’t have time to spend making sure their computers are secure. If a certain workstation catches a virus, it is possible that the virus can spread throughout the entire network. A workgroup network will allow other workstations to be able to share files with one another without any issues. Our networking specialists can assist you to see which network would work best for your company.

Domain Controller Computer Networking
On a domain network, the workstations are used by employees and users in the organization. The Domain Controller known as the server, is capable of managing the user workstations in many different aspects. When a domain based computer is logged in, it authenticates across the network to the appropriate user account on the Domain Controller. It then verifies the password stored there, rather than doing the same on the local computer. In this way, only users with specific rights and policies are able to log in with their username and password as programmed in the domain controller. This frees up time for the end user to work and guarantees that any viruses will be reported to the Domain Controller and ultimately the administrator. However, not all organizations are obligated to switch over to a domain network. The minimum you need to operate with a domain is one computer running Windows Professional or higher and a Domain Controller server, but a setup as small as this may not be practical. Most small businesses with only a few computers may not be able to justify switching over to a larger, domain based network.
