Affordably Priced Hosting Solutions for Your Domains
There are 2 entities you demand in order to host an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your online portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, 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 plan are 2 linked, yet different services, and you need them both so as to have an operational 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 name can be up to 64 symbols long and it comprises 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite 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 particular span of time between one and ten yrs. They may contain other preconditions with respect to the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Services
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the web page files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your site. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and receive the hosting service from another, although many hosting vendors offer both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from one and the same website hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name servers. Each provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.thecheapestwebhost.com and ns2.thecheapestwebhost.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain gives you the chance to modify the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting firm or another.
The Need of Reliable website hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will obtain several web services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you host on the server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish mail address accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web page, being online and being permitted to set up e-mail addresses with your domain name are the two most significant options that you receive with a web hosting plan. If you run a business online portal – it will identify your business before your visitors or customers. For that reason you require a trustworthy hosting supplier that will provide a dependable and steady web hosting service.
