Inexpensive Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two features you demand in order to kick off a web page. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a hosting account, which is inherently the disk space on a web server where the site files will be situated, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 linked, yet separate services, and you demand them both to have an operational web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of two constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of TLDs to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between 1 and 10 years. They may entail more preconditions in regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your website. You can have a domain registered with a particular company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting corporations offer both solutions and it is more convenient to handle all services from one single website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting company has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.webhostingorg.com and ns2.www.webhostingorg.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name gives you the possibility to modify the name server records and point the domain name to one host or another.

The Need of Stable Hosting Solutions

Once the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting service provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive different online services. The most vital one is that the website files that you host on the web server will now be available online when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mail address accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you have a personal or a business website, being available online and being permitted to set up e-mails with your domain are the two most fundamental options that you get with a hosting plan. In case you host a business web portal – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. That is the reason why you require a reliable service provider that will provide a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
