Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 entities you need in order to kick off a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your web site when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is principally the hard disk space on a web hosting server where the website files will be situated, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet separate services, and you require them both in order to have a running online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is composed of 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between 1 and ten years. They may involve additional specifications with respect to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting plan where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the web content that you host in the account, in other words it will show your website. You can have a domain registered with one company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting companies offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage everything from one web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.hostingwebs.co.uk and ns2.www.hostingwebs.co.uk, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain gives you the chance to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one company or another.

The Demand for Stable website hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their web servers, you will get various online services. The most vital one is that the website files that you have on the web hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail box accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate online portal, being online and being able to set up mailboxes with your domain are the two most fundamental options that come with a web hosting account. If you have a corporate web portal – it will identify your business before your visitors or clients. This is why you demand a reliable hosting distributor that will offer a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
