Cut-Rate Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 things you demand so as to set up a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is principally the hard disk storage space on a server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are two similar, yet different solutions, and you require both of them so as to have an operational site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it consists of two constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set number of top-level domain names to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between one and ten years. They may include more requirements in relation to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will open the site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain registered with one company and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosts provide both services and it is more time-saving to handle everything from a single website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting supplier has at least 2 name servers - ns1.wpwebspace.com and ns2.wpwebspace.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain offers you the option to modify the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting supplier or another.

The Demand for Stable web hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting company and is added to their servers, you will receive various services. The most important one is that the web page files that you keep on the server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail boxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate online portal, being accessible online and being allowed to create mails with your domain are the two most important options that you receive with a website hosting plan. If you own a corporate online portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or customers. That's why you require a reliable service provider that will offer a fast and steady web hosting solution.
