Cut-Price Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains

There are 2 features you demand in order to run a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is inherently the disk space on a web server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are two associated, yet different solutions, and you require them both so as to have a working website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it contains 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been taken 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 stretch of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may include additional prerequisites in relation to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will display the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your web page. You can have a domain registered with one registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting distributors provide both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from the same website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting service provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.sbnai.net and ns2.sbnai.net, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the option to alter the nameservers and point the domain name to one hosting vendor or another.

The Necessity for Dependable Hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting corporation and is added to their web servers, you will receive various online services. The most important one is that the web site files that you have on the server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail address accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate site, being available online and being allowed to create mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most significant things that you get with a web hosting account. In case you administer a business site – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. That is why you need a trustworthy hosting corporation that will offer a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
