Cut-Price Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 features you require so as to establish an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a hosting package, which is fundamentally the disk storage space on a web server where the web page files will be located, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 connected, yet different solutions, and you need them both to have a working website.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it includes 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a set number of TLDs to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given span of time between one and 10 yrs. They may contain other specifications with respect to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting account where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web page. You can have a domain registered with one provider and get the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting firms offer both services and it is more convenient to manage all services from a single website hosting CP GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each company has at least 2 name servers - ns1.domainhosthaven.com and ns2.domainhosthaven.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain name gives you the chance to change the name server records and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.

The Necessity for Dependable Hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive various services. The most important one is that the web page files that you host on the web hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create emails such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you run a personal or a business website, being online and being allowed to use email mailboxes with your domain are the two most pivotal things that come with a website hosting plan. In case you manage a business website – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. That's why you demand a reliable hosting company that will furnish a fast and steady web hosting solution.
