Cut-Rate Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains

There are 2 items you need in order to open a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a hosting package, which is primarily the hard disk space on a web hosting server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two similar, yet different services, and you need both of them so as to have a running web site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it consists of two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a set number of TLDs to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may impose other preconditions in regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to include it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the web page files that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your web page. You can have a domain registered with a certain provider and get the hosting service from another, although many hosting suppliers provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer everything from one single website hosting CP GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each web hosting distributor has at least two name servers - ns1.123webplan.com and ns2.123webplan.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the chance to alter the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting provider or another.

The Necessity for Dependable web hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting firm and is added to their servers, you will obtain a number of services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you host on the server will now be accessible when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish emails like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate website, being accessible online and being allowed to use mailboxes with your domain are the two most essential options that you receive with a web hosting account. In case you manage a business site – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or customers. That is why you demand a trustworthy web hosting supplier that will provide a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
