Low-Priced Hosting Services for Your Domain Names

There are 2 features you require so as to kick off a website. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your online portal when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is basically the hard disk space on a web hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 similar, yet different solutions, and you require them both in order to have a functioning web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it is made of 2 constituents – 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 TLD. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between one and 10 yrs. They may have other stipulations with regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to host it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the site files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your site. You can have a domain registered with a certain provider and get the hosting service from another, although many hosting corporations offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from the same web hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each hosting company has at least 2 name servers - ns1.thehostingdudes.com and ns2.thehostingdudes.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain offers you the opportunity to alter the nameservers and point the domain name to one web host or another.

The Necessity for Trustworthy Website Hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive a number of services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up electronic mailboxes like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a business website, being available online and being allowed to set up emails with your domain are the two most essential options that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you manage a corporate site – it will identify your business before your visitors or clients. That's why you require a trustworthy web host that will supply a reliable and stable hosting service.
