Low-Cost Web Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names

There are 2 items you need in order to open a web page. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is inherently the disk space on a hosting server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two linked, yet different services, and you require both of them so as to have a running online portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it involves 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a set number of TLDs to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain stretch of time between 1 and ten years. They may include more requirements concerning the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web content that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a certain company and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting distributors offer both solutions and it is more convenient to administer all services from the same web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting distributor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.nextlevelwebhost.com and ns2.www.nextlevelwebhost.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the possibility to alter the name server records and point the domain to one web hosting provider or another.

The Necessity for Stable website hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting distributor and is added to their servers, you will get different services. The most essential one is that the site files that you host on the web hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mails such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a business web site, being accessible online and being permitted to create email box accounts with your domain are the two most pivotal things that you get with a hosting account. If you host a business website – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. For that reason you demand a trustworthy host that will supply a fast and stable website hosting solution.
