Moderately Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names

There are 2 features you demand so as to open a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a hosting plan, which is basically the data storage space on a server where the website files will be placed, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet different solutions, and you require them both in order to have a functioning web portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it comprises 2 parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a finite number of TLDs to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain stretch of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may impose more requirements regarding the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting package where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will display the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your site. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and get the hosting service from another, although many hosts offer both services and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one and the same web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each hosting service provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.nextlevelwebhost.com and ns2.www.nextlevelwebhost.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the possibility to modify the NS records and point the domain to one host or another.

The Need of Reliable website hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting company and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get a number of services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you keep on the web server will now be accessible when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail addresses such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate web page, being accessible online and being allowed to use email addresses with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that you receive with a hosting package. If you run a corporate site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. That's why you require a stable web hosting company that will furnish a dependable and stable web hosting service.
