Moderately Priced Web Hosting Packages for Your Domains

There are two items you require so as to set up an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your web site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is primarily the data storage space on a web server where the site files will be placed, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet separate services, and you need them both so as to have a working online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it includes two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain interval of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may impose more requirements about the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting plan where you have to include it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the website files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a particular registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosting suppliers offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each host has at least two name servers - ns1.web-of-friends.host and ns2.web-of-friends.host, for example. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain offers you the chance to change the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting provider or another.

The Need of Trustworthy web hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting service provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive several web services. The most essential one is that the site files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail box accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate web site, being available online and being able to use email mailboxes with your domain are the two most pivotal options that you get with a web hosting account. If you have a business website – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. That is the reason why you require a stable hosting firm that will offer a fast and stable web hosting solution.
