Cut-Rate Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are two entities you demand so as to host a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web page when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is basically the hard disk space on a web server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting account are two associated, yet separate services, and you require both of them in order to have an operational web page.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it is composed of two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain spell of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may contain other stipulations with regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to host it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the web site files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your site. You can have a domain name registered with a specific registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting providers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to handle everything from the same website hosting CP GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the 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 servers. Each hosting service provider has at least two name servers - ns1.steeledesignstudio.com and ns2.steeledesignstudio.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain offers you the possibility to change the name server records and point the domain name to one web hosting provider or another.

The Demand for Dependable web hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting service provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get various online services. The most important one is that the website files that you host on the web server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up mailbox accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you administer a personal or a business online portal, being available online and being able to set up email mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most pivotal things that you obtain with a web hosting plan. In case you manage a corporate web site – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. For that reason you demand a trustworthy hosting supplier that will furnish a dependable and steady website hosting solution.
