Cut-Price Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names
There are two entities you demand in order to start a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is fundamentally the hard disk space on a web hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are two linked, yet different solutions, and you need both of them in order to have an operational online portal.
What is a Domain?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between 1 and ten years. They may entail other prerequisites in regard to the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Services
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to include it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your website. You can have a domain registered with a specific provider and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting corporations provide both solutions and it is more convenient to handle all services from one web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each web hosting corporation has at least two name servers - ns1.hostingtech.net and ns2.hostingtech.net, for instance. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain name gives you the option to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one company or another.
The Need of Dependable web hosting Services
Once the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting corporation and is added to their servers, you will obtain a number of web services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up emails like email@example.com and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate online portal, being available online and being able to set up electronic mail accounts with your domain name are the two most significant options that you obtain with a website hosting account. In case you administer a corporate online portal – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. For this reason you need a trustworthy company that will furnish a reliable and stable website hosting solution.
