Inexpensive Web Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are two things you demand so as to start a website. The first one is a domain name that will open your website when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is basically the data storage space on a server where the web page files will be situated, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 linked, yet different solutions, and you require both of them so as to have a working web page.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it includes two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between one and ten yrs. They may impose more requirements in regard to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web content that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a given company and obtain the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting firms offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage everything from the same website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.hostatgo.us and ns2.hostatgo.us, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name gives you the option to alter the name server records and point the domain name to one hosting vendor or another.

The Necessity for Trustworthy web hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting service provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive various web services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mailbox accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate web page, being available online and being able to use e-mail accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that you obtain with a website hosting package. In case you run a business online portal – it will identify your business before your website visitors or customers. For this reason you need a dependable hosting distributor that will supply a fast and steady web hosting service.
