Affordable Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two features you require in order to run a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is fundamentally the data storage space on a hosting server where the web site files will be located, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are two related, yet different services, and you demand them both in order to have a functioning site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises two constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between one and ten years. They may contain more stipulations concerning the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a given company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting providers provide both services and it is more time-saving to administer all services from one and the same web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each company has at least two nameservers - ns1.domaincontrol.net and ns2.domaincontrol.net, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the opportunity to change the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting firm or another.

The Necessity for Reliable web hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting provider and is added to their servers, you will receive a number of web services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you have on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a business site, being available online and being enabled to create mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most essential things that you get with a web hosting package. In case you run a corporate website – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. That is the reason why you require a trustworthy hosting firm that will provide a fast and stable web hosting service.
