Cut-Price Hosting Services for Your Domains

There are two features you demand in order to own a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is primarily the disk space on a server where the web page files will be located, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet different services, and you require them both so as to have a functioning online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is made of 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between one and 10 years. They may contain additional specifications in relation to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the web site files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a certain company and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting vendors provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer everything from a single CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.youhostweb.com and ns2.youhostweb.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the option to change the name server records and point the domain name to one hosting service provider or another.

The Necessity for Trustworthy web hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting company and is added to their web servers, you will receive several services. The most important one is that the web page files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create email addresses like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate website, being available online and being permitted to create email accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that come with a website hosting account. In case you have a business web page – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. This is why you demand a dependable web hosting firm that will furnish a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
