Half-Priced Hosting Plans for Your TLDs

There are 2 features you need so as to host a web page. The first one is a domain name that will display your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is fundamentally the disk space on a hosting server where the site files will be located, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are two similar, yet different services, and you need them both in order to have an operational web site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it includes 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain spell of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may entail more specifications with regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting package where you have to include it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your online portal. You can have a domain registered with one company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many hosting suppliers provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle everything from one website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting supplier has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.hservers.com and ns2.hservers.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name offers you the possibility to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one web hosting distributor or another.

The Need of Reliable web hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting company and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get different online services. The most vital one is that the website files that you have on the hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish mailboxes like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being permitted to set up email addresses with your domain name are the two most important things that you get with a web hosting account. In case you have a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. That is the reason why you need a stable provider that will provide a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
