Reasonably Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are two features you demand in order to kick off a web site. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is basically the hard disk space on a server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two similar, yet different solutions, and you demand both of them in order to have an operational 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 sixty four characters long and it is made of 2 components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular interval of time between one and 10 yrs. They may entail other stipulations about the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will exhibit the web content that you host in the account, in other words it will display your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a specific registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting distributors offer both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from a single web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each hosting distributor has at least two nameservers - ns1.glinthost.com and ns2.glinthost.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain name offers you the option to change the nameservers and point the domain to one web hosting vendor or another.

The Demand for Dependable Hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting corporation and is added to their web servers, you will get different services. The most essential one is that the site files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up email addresses like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web page, being accessible online and being enabled to set up e-mail boxes with your domain are the two most pivotal things that you obtain with a hosting package. If you run a corporate web site – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. For this reason you need a dependable hosting vendor that will provide a dependable and steady website hosting service.
