Cheap Hosting Services for Your TLDs

There are two items you demand so as to host a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is fundamentally the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 associated, yet different solutions, and you demand both of them to have an operational web page.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it includes two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, 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 name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a certain number of TLDs to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between 1 and 10 years. They may entail additional specifications about the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a particular company and get the hosting service from another, even though many hosting suppliers offer both services and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one and the same website hosting CP user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each hosting firm has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.linux-hosts-inc.com and ns2.linux-hosts-inc.com, for example. The Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the chance to modify the name servers and point the domain to one hosting supplier or another.

The Necessity for Dependable web hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting company and is added to their web servers, you will get various online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you host on the web hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail boxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate web site, being available online and being permitted to create mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that you get with a web hosting account. In case you manage a corporate web portal – it will identify your business before your visitors or clients. That is why you demand a trustworthy web hosting vendor that will offer a fast and steady web hosting solution.
