Modestly Priced Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 things you require so as to have an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a hosting plan, which is essentially the storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be located, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 connected, yet different services, and you need both of them in order to have a functioning site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it involves 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between one and 10 years. They may involve other preconditions when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting plan where you have to host it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the content that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web page. You can have a domain registered with a specific registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting providers provide both solutions and it is more convenient to handle everything from a single web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name servers. Each web hosting vendor has at least two name servers - ns1.spacehostia.com and ns2.spacehostia.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the option to change the name server records and point the domain to one web hosting supplier or another.

The Demand for Stable Web Hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting distributor and is added to their hosting servers, you will get a number of online services. The most important one is that the web site files that you have on the server will now be displayed when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish electronic mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate site, being accessible online and being able to set up mails with your domain are the two most important options that come with a hosting package. In case you host a corporate online portal – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. This is the reason why you need a reliable hosting service provider that will offer a fast and stable web hosting solution.
