Affordable Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 entities you require so as to kick off a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your website when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is fundamentally the data storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be located, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 associated, yet different solutions, and you require them both in order to have a functioning web page.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is made of 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set 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 given stretch of time between one and 10 years. They may entail other preconditions in relation to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting plan where you have to include it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the site files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your online portal. You can have a domain registered with a certain provider and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting suppliers provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer all services from one single website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each hosting corporation has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.123megahost.com and ns2.123megahost.com, for example. The CP that you utilize for your domain gives you the possibility to alter the nameservers and point the domain name to one web host or another.

The Need of Stable web hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most essential one is that the site files that you keep on the server will now be accessible when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you administer a personal or a business site, being online and being permitted to use e-mail address accounts with your domain are the two most significant options that come with a website hosting package. If you administer a business online portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or customers. That is the reason why you need a reliable hosting corporation that will furnish a fast and stable web hosting solution.
