Cheap Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 entities you demand in order to host a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is principally the hard disk space on a web hosting server where the site files will be located, plus several more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are two linked, yet separate services, and you demand both of them to have an operational website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of 2 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. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between one and 10 years. They may entail additional preconditions concerning the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the web content that you have in the account, in other words it will open your online portal. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though lots of service providers provide both services and it is more convenient to manage all services from the same website hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each hosting supplier has at least two name servers - ns1.hosting2domains.com and ns2.hosting2domains.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain gives you the option to alter the name server records and point the domain name to one company or another.

The Need of Dependable web hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting distributor and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain a number of web services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you keep on the web server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mail accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you manage a personal or a business web site, being accessible online and being able to create email address accounts with your domain name are the two most important options that come with a web hosting plan. In case you have a corporate online portal – it will identify your business before your website visitors or customers. That is why you demand a reliable web hosting firm that will supply a fast and steady hosting solution.
