Modestly Priced Hosting Solutions for Your Domains

There are two features you demand so as to establish a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your online portal when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is principally the disk storage space on a hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 linked, yet separate services, and you need both of them to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is composed of two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, 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 available for registration, there is a set number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between one and 10 yrs. They may involve additional prerequisites when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting package where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your website. You can have a domain registered with a certain provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting service providers offer both services and it is more convenient to handle all services from the same Control Panel interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each company has at least two nameservers - ns1.hostingdad.com and ns2.hostingdad.com, for example. The hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the chance to modify the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting service provider or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy website hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain several online services. The most essential one is that the site files that you host on the web server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create electronic mails such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you have a personal or a business website, being online and being allowed to create e-mail boxes with your domain name are the two most significant options that you get with a hosting account. In case you have a corporate online portal – it will identify your business before your visitors or customers. This is the reason why you demand a trustworthy hosting corporation that will furnish a dependable and steady web hosting service.
