Cheap Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 things you need in order to run a web page. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a web server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 linked, yet separate services, and you need both of them so as to have a running web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a set number of top-level domain names to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed span of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may involve more requirements in regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the files that you host in the account, in other words it will open your web page. You can have a domain registered with a certain registrar and get the hosting service from another, although many web hosting providers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from one CP tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting service provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.supernovahost.net and ns2.www.supernovahost.net, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name gives you the possibility to modify the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting company or another.

The Necessity for Dependable Web Hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting supplier and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get a number of services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you host on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish mail addresses such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate web portal, being available online and being enabled to create mail addresses with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that you receive with a website hosting plan. In case you host a corporate website – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. This is the reason why you need a stable service provider that will furnish a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
