Discounted Web Hosting Services for Your Domains
There are 2 things you require so as to have a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your website when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is essentially the disk space on a web hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are two interconnected, yet separate services, and you need them both to have a working web portal.
What is a Domain?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is composed of 2 parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain spell of time between one and 10 years. They may entail other prerequisites in regard to the registrant.
Domain Web Hosting Solutions
As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to include it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the web page files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a specific provider and get the hosting service from another, although lots of hosting corporations provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from one and the same web hosting CP tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain – the so-called name servers. Each company has at least two name servers – ns1.www.webhostingandservers.com and ns2.www.webhostingandservers.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain gives you the option to modify the NS records and point the domain to one hosting corporation or another.
The Necessity for Reliable Hosting Solutions
Once the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will obtain several web services. The most important one is that the website files that you accommodate on the server will now be available online when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish electronic mailboxes such as firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you host a personal or a business online portal, being accessible online and being able to use electronic mail accounts with your domain name are the two most essential things that you receive with a website hosting plan. In case you manage a business web site – it will single out your business before your visitors or clients. That is why you need a trustworthy web hosting service provider that will provide a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
