Affordable Web Hosting Solutions for Your Domain Names
There are two items you need so as to start a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is primarily the storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are two linked, yet separate services, and you require them both in order to have an operational online portal.
What is a Domain?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it is composed of two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular spell of time between one and 10 years. They may contain other stipulations in relation to the registrant.
Domain Web Hosting Services
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the website files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a particular provider and get the hosting service from another, although lots of providers offer both services and it is more time-saving to handle all services from the same web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.www.inthecloudcompany.com and ns2.www.inthecloudcompany.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the chance to alter the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting service provider or another.
The Necessity for Stable website hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting corporation and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive various online services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create mail addresses like email@example.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate online portal, being accessible online and being allowed to use e-mail accounts with your domain are the two most pivotal options that come with a web hosting account. If you own a corporate online portal – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. That is the reason why you demand a trustworthy host that will furnish a reliable and stable hosting solution.
