Affordable Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names
There are two entities you demand in order to run a web site. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is fundamentally the disk space on a web server where the website files will be situated, plus several more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two similar, yet separate solutions, and you require both of them so as to have a running web page.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it involves two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may involve additional requirements when it comes to the registrant.
Domain Name Hosting Services
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting account where you have to include it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your site. You can have a domain registered with one company and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting companies provide both solutions and it is more convenient to manage all services from one single website hosting CP tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting supplier has at least 2 name servers - ns1.extrahoster.com and ns2.extrahoster.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain name offers you the option to modify the name server records and point the domain name to one hosting vendor or another.
The Necessity for Reliable Hosting Solutions
The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will obtain various online services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you have on the web server will now be displayed when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create email mailboxes such as email@example.com and use webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate web page, being accessible online and being permitted to use mailboxes with your domain are the two most cardinal options that you receive with a web hosting account. If you manage a business site – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. For this reason you need a stable company that will supply a fast and steady web hosting service.
