Reasonably Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are two features you demand in order to run a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 linked, yet separate solutions, and you need them both in order to have a functioning site.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it comprises 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may involve more preconditions about the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to include it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web content that you have in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a certain company and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosting suppliers offer both services and it is more convenient to handle everything from one and the same web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each hosting vendor has at least 2 name servers - ns1.uk-hq.net and ns2.uk-hq.net, for instance. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain offers you the option to alter the name server records and point the domain to one web hosting supplier or another.

The Demand for Dependable web hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting supplier and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain various online services. The most crucial one is that the web site files that you have on the hosting server will now be displayed when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up email mailbox accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a business online portal, being available online and being enabled to use mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most essential things that you get with a website hosting package. If you manage a business site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. That is the reason why you need a trustworthy provider that will furnish a dependable and stable hosting service.
