Low-Price Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two items you need in order to kick off a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is primarily the hard disk space on a hosting server where the web site files will be situated, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are two connected, yet different solutions, and you need both of them so as to have a working website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it contains two entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular period of time between one and ten years. They may involve other requirements in regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting package where you have to include it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the site files that you host in the account, in other words it will open your site. You can have a domain registered with one provider and obtain the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosting providers offer both services and it is more convenient to handle all services from one single hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting supplier has at least two name servers - ns1.hostingsolutions.com and ns2.hostingsolutions.com, for instance. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the chance to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting distributor or another.

The Necessity for Dependable web hosting Solutions

Once the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting vendor and is added to their hosting servers, you will get several web services. The most important one is that the web site files that you have on the web server will now be accessible when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail boxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a business online portal, being accessible online and being allowed to set up email address accounts with your domain are the two most pivotal things that you get with a web hosting package. If you have a corporate web site – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or clients. For that reason you need a dependable web hosting firm that will supply a dependable and stable web hosting service.
