Cut-Price Web Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are 2 entities you demand in order to open a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a hosting account, which is inherently the data storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be located, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet separate solutions, and you require both of them in order to have a working website.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it is composed of 2 components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may include more prerequisites when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to add it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the site files that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosting service providers offer both services and it is more convenient to administer everything from the same web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting vendor has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.webpage4all.com and ns2.www.webpage4all.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain offers you the opportunity to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting corporation or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy website hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting firm and is added to their web servers, you will obtain several services. The most important one is that the web page files that you host on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mails such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate website, being online and being allowed to use email address accounts with your domain name are the two most essential things that you receive with a web hosting package. If you run a business web site – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. For that reason you need a dependable web host that will offer a dependable and stable website hosting service.
