Cut-Rate Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 items you require so as to host a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is primarily the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be situated, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are two associated, yet different solutions, and you demand both of them to have a functioning web page.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it contains 2 pieces – 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 name, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the SLD of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite number of TLDs to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between one and 10 yrs. They may entail other preconditions in relation to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting plan where you have to include it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will show the content that you host in the account, in other words it will show your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a particular registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting service providers provide both solutions and it is more convenient to manage all services from the same hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting service provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.thecomputerbin.info and ns2.thecomputerbin.info, for example. The hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the opportunity to change the nameservers and point the domain name to one hosting provider or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy Web Hosting Solutions

Once the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting corporation and is added to their web servers, you will get different online services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you have on the web hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail box accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate website, being online and being permitted to set up mailboxes with your domain name are the two most pivotal things that you receive with a web hosting package. In case you run a corporate web page – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or customers. That is the reason why you demand a dependable company that will offer a reliable and steady website hosting solution.
