Web Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names
There are 2 entities you need in order to have a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a hosting plan, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are two similar, yet different services, and you demand both of them in order to have a working web site.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is composed of two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set number of TLDs to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between 1 and ten years. They may include additional preconditions in relation to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the web content that you host in the account, in other words it will open your website. You can have a domain registered with one provider and get the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosting companies provide both services and it is more time-saving to administer all services from the same website hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each hosting supplier has at least two nameservers - ns1.1onlinehost.com and ns2.1onlinehost.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the possibility to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one service provider or another.
The Necessity for Trustworthy web hosting Services
The moment the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting supplier and is added to their web servers, you will receive a number of online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mail addresses such as email@example.com and avail of webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you administer a personal or a business site, being available online and being allowed to set up email mailboxes with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that you receive with a web hosting plan. If you own a corporate online portal – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. For this reason you need a trustworthy hosting vendor that will offer a fast and stable hosting service.
