Affordably Priced Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 things you require so as to start a website. The first one is a domain name that will show your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a hosting plan, which is principally the disk space on a web server where the web page files will be situated, plus several more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet different services, and you require both of them so as to have a running web site.
What is a Domain?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is composed of 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may have more stipulations in regard to the registrant.
Domain Hosting Solutions
As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to include it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your online portal. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosts offer both solutions and it is more convenient to manage all services from one single web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting corporation has at least two name servers - ns1.1onlinehost.com and ns2.1onlinehost.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name offers you the option to change the nameservers and point the domain name to one hosting service provider or another.
The Necessity for Stable web hosting Services
The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get different online services. The most important one is that the web site files that you have on the hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up mailboxes like email@example.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you host a personal or a business web site, being available online and being able to set up e-mailbox accounts with your domain are the two most essential things that come with a hosting plan. In case you run a corporate web site – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. Therefore you require a dependable hosting vendor that will deliver a reliable and stable website hosting solution.
