Affordably Priced Web Hosting Services for Your Domain Names
There are two things you require in order to establish a web page. The first one is a domain name that will display your online portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a web server where the website files will be situated, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 connected, yet different services, and you demand them both in order to have a running website.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it includes two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, 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 fixed period of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may entail more stipulations about the registrant.
Domain Web Hosting Solutions
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to add it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a specific company and get the hosting service from another, although lots of hosts provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer everything from one single hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each provider has at least two name servers - ns1.host-23.com and ns2.host-23.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the possibility to change the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting distributor or another.
The Need of Reliable Website Hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting firm and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive a number of online services. The most vital one is that the site files that you accommodate on the server will now be shown when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mailbox accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and use webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate online portal, being online and being permitted to set up e-mail address accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal things that come with a website hosting package. In case you have a business web site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. That's why you demand a reliable web hosting distributor that will furnish a reliable and steady hosting solution.
