Affordable Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names
There are 2 items you require so as to launch a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is principally the data storage space on a web server where the web site files will be situated, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 associated, yet different solutions, and you need both of them to have a running web page.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it comprises two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the SLD of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of TLDs to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed stretch of time between one and 10 years. They may contain additional stipulations in regard to the registrant.
Domain Name Hosting Solutions
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to add it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the files that you host in the account, in other words it will exhibit your website. You can have a domain name registered with a particular provider and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosts provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from one single web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each hosting provider has at least two name servers - ns1.zonkhost.net and ns2.zonkhost.net, for example. The hosting CP that you have for your domain offers you the possibility to change the nameservers and point the domain name to one company or another.
The Need of Dependable web hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting vendor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive several online services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you have on the server will now be shown when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish mailboxes like firstname.lastname@example.org and utilize webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being permitted to use mail accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that you obtain with a web hosting account. If you own a corporate web page – it will single out your business before your visitors or clients. Therefore you need a trustworthy service provider that will furnish a reliable and steady web hosting service.
