Cut-Price Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two entities you need so as to set up a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is principally the storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 linked, yet different solutions, and you need both of them so as to have a working site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a set number of top-level domain names to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between one and ten years. They may have other specifications regarding the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting package where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the web page files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your website. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although many hosting companies offer both services and it is more convenient to handle all services from the same web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.hostingwebs.co.uk and ns2.www.hostingwebs.co.uk, for instance. The hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name gives you the possibility to alter the name server records and point the domain name to one web hosting distributor or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy Website Hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting distributor and is added to their servers, you will obtain different services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you have on the web server will now be shown when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up electronic mails such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate online portal, being available online and being permitted to create emails with your domain name are the two most significant options that come with a web hosting account. If you host a corporate site – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. For that reason you demand a reliable web hosting supplier that will supply a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
