Modestly Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two things you demand in order to open a web page. The first one is a domain name that will open your site when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is fundamentally the storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are two linked, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them in order to have a functioning site.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it consists of 2 components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may involve more specifications in regard to the registrant.
Domain Hosting Solutions
As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a hosting account where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web site. You can have a domain registered with a certain company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting vendors offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from the same website hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting vendor has at least two name servers - ns1.correcthost.com and ns2.correcthost.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name gives you the option to change the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting vendor or another.
The Demand for Stable web hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting company and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get several services. The most essential one is that the website files that you have on the web server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mailboxes like email@example.com and utilize webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you administer a personal or a business site, being available online and being able to set up email box accounts with your domain are the two most pivotal options that come with a website hosting package. In case you administer a corporate website – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. That is the reason why you need a stable hosting distributor that will provide a reliable and stable web hosting service.
