Cut-Rate Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 things you demand in order to host a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your website when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is fundamentally the hard disk space on a web server where the website files will be placed, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are two connected, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them in order to have an operational web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it involves 2 parts – a Top-Level Domain (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 pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that is free to register, 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 period of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may include other requirements regarding the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a given provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosting providers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from the same CP user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each hosting service provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.www.serverscloud.net and ns2.www.serverscloud.net, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name gives you the chance to change the NS records and point the domain name to one host or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy Hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will obtain several web services. The most essential one is that the site files that you host on the web server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish mail accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a business online portal, being online and being able to set up e-mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that come with a web hosting plan. If you run a business web page – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. That's why you require a reliable hosting corporation that will deliver a dependable and stable web hosting solution.
