Affordable Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names


There are two items you demand in order to establish a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is primarily the data storage space on a server where the web page files will be located, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 similar, yet separate services, and you demand them both so as to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it contains 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of TLDs to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between one and ten years. They may involve other stipulations regarding the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a particular registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting suppliers offer both services and it is more convenient to handle everything from a single web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each hosting vendor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.steeledesignstudio.com and ns2.steeledesignstudio.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the opportunity to modify the name server records and point the domain to one hosting provider or another.

The Demand for Stable Web Hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting firm and is added to their servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you keep on the hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create email mailboxes like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a business web page, being online and being able to use emails with your domain are the two most important things that you receive with a website hosting package. In case you have a business site – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. That is why you demand a reliable web hosting service provider that will provide a fast and steady web hosting service.
