Inexpensive Hosting Plans for Your Domains
There are 2 entities you demand in order to run an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is principally the hard disk storage space on a web hosting server where the site files will be located, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two similar, yet separate solutions, and you require them both so as to have an operational online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a set number of top-level domain names to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between one and ten years. They may impose more stipulations with respect to the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to host it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the website files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your web site. You can have a domain registered with one company and receive the hosting service from another, although many web hosting suppliers provide both services and it is more time-saving to manage all services from a single website hosting CP user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each hosting company has at least two name servers - ns1.hostplenty.com and ns2.hostplenty.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain gives you the possibility to change the name server records and point the domain to one web hosting distributor or another.
The Need of Trustworthy website hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive a number of services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you have on the hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish emails such as email@example.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you run a personal or a business website, being accessible online and being enabled to set up mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most important options that you obtain with a website hosting package. In case you manage a corporate web site – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. That's why you need a trustworthy host that will offer a dependable and steady website hosting service.
