Cut-Rate Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names
There are 2 features you require in order to host a website. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your site when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is inherently the disk storage space on a web server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are two interconnected, yet separate services, and you require them both to have a running web portal.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it is made of two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may contain additional preconditions concerning the registrant.
Domain Name Hosting Services
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will open the content that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your web site. You can have a domain registered with a specific provider and get the hosting service from another, although many hosting corporations offer both services and it is more convenient to administer everything from a single Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each company has at least two nameservers - ns1.mytrustywebhost.com and ns2.mytrustywebhost.com, for example. The hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the chance to modify the name server records and point the domain to one host or another.
The Need of Dependable web hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting supplier and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get several services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you host on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you type 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 an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate web page, being accessible online and being permitted to set up e-mail addresses with your domain are the two most important things that come with a web hosting package. In case you have a business website – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. That is why you require a stable web hosting corporation that will supply a reliable and steady website hosting service.
