Reasonably Priced Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains

There are 2 entities you demand so as to kick off a web page. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a hosting package, which is inherently the hard disk space on a hosting server where the web site files will be located, plus several more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are two connected, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them to have a functioning web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it includes 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of TLDs to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular period of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may include other specifications regarding the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will show the site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your web page. You can have a domain registered with a certain provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many service providers provide both services and it is more convenient to manage everything from one single hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each host has at least two name servers - ns1.www.consultingforge.name and ns2.www.consultingforge.name, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the option to modify the name server records and point the domain to one hosting provider or another.

The Need of Dependable Website Hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting provider and is added to their servers, you will receive various online services. The most important one is that the website files that you host on the web hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create emails such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate web site, being accessible online and being able to use email box accounts with your domain are the two most important options that come with a web hosting plan. In case you have a corporate web page – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. That's why you require a trustworthy web hosting service provider that will offer a reliable and steady website hosting solution.
