Inexpensive Web Hosting Solutions for Your Domain Names
There are two entities you need so as to have a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web page when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is fundamentally the data storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be located, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two interconnected, yet different solutions, and you demand them both in order to have a running site.
What is a Domain?
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it contains 2 components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of TLDs to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between one and 10 yrs. They may entail other prerequisites about the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your web site. You can have a domain name registered with one provider and get the hosting service from another, even though many service providers provide both services and it is more time-saving to administer everything from a single web hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each company has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.magnoliasweets.us and ns2.www.magnoliasweets.us, for instance. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain offers you the opportunity to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one web hosting vendor or another.
The Demand for Stable Website Hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting distributor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get several services. The most important one is that the web site files that you keep on the server will now be accessible when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up mailbox accounts like email@example.com and make use of webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate online portal, being online and being enabled to set up mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most pivotal options that you obtain with a website hosting package. In case you manage a business website – it will identify your business before your visitors or customers. That is why you need a reliable hosting company that will provide a fast and steady website hosting solution.
