Moderately Priced Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two features you require so as to start an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is essentially the data storage space on a server where the website files will be located, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 related, yet different services, and you need both of them so as to have a working website.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it is composed of 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above 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 registered yet, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given period of time between 1 and ten years. They may entail other prerequisites concerning the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting package where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web site files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your site. You can have a domain registered with a specific provider and obtain the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosts provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage everything from one website hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting package are different 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 name - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting corporation has at least 2 name servers - ns1.webspromoted.biz and ns2.webspromoted.biz, for example. The CP that you have for your domain name gives you the possibility to change the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting service provider or another.

The Necessity for Stable website hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting supplier and is added to their web servers, you will get different web services. The most essential one is that the website files that you have on the server will now be available online when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail box accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a business web site, being available online and being enabled to set up electronic mailboxes with your domain are the two most fundamental things that come with a web hosting package. If you own a corporate online portal – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. Therefore you require a trustworthy hosting firm that will deliver a fast and stable website hosting solution.
