Cut-Price Hosting Packages for Your Domains

There are two items you demand so as to kick off a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is essentially the disk space on a server where the website files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 connected, yet separate services, and you require both of them so as to have a running web site.

What is a Domain Name?

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 instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it is made of two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular interval of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may have more preconditions with regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will open the website files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many hosts offer both solutions and it is more convenient to administer everything from one single website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each service provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.magnoliasweets.us and ns2.www.magnoliasweets.us, for instance. The hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the chance to change the name server records and point the domain to one provider or another.

The Necessity for Trustworthy Website Hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting firm and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain several services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you host on the server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create email accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate online portal, being available online and being allowed to use email addresses with your domain are the two most significant things that you receive with a website hosting account. In case you own a corporate website – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. This is why you demand a trustworthy hosting supplier that will deliver a reliable and steady website hosting service.
