Moderately Priced Web Hosting Solutions for Your Domain Names

There are 2 entities you need in order to host a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 associated, yet separate services, and you require them both so as to have an operational web page.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given span of time between one and ten years. They may include additional preconditions about the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a specific registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting distributors offer both services and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one and the same website hosting CP GUI. Either way, because 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 do that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting firm has at least two name servers - ns1.www.greathosts.biz and ns2.www.greathosts.biz, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the chance to change the name servers and point the domain name to one hosting supplier or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy website hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting service provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will get a number of online services. The most vital one is that the site files that you host on the hosting server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish mail accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a business web page, being online and being allowed to create e-mail boxes with your domain name are the two most significant options that you obtain with a web hosting account. If you have a corporate web site – it will single out your business before your website visitors or customers. That's why you demand a dependable web hosting service provider that will supply a dependable and stable web hosting solution.
