Moderately Priced Web Hosting Services for Your Domains
There are two items you need so as to set up a website. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is primarily the data storage space on a server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two connected, yet separate services, and you demand them both in order to have an operational site.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is composed of 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set 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 certain interval of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may involve more specifications about the registrant.
Domain Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and get the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting distributors offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage everything from the same website hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each hosting vendor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.conchtown.com and ns2.conchtown.com, for example. The CP that you use for your domain name gives you the possibility to modify the nameservers and point the domain to one web hosting supplier or another.
The Demand for Dependable website hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting provider and is added to their servers, you will get a number of online services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you have on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailbox accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you run a personal or a business website, being online and being permitted to set up e-mail accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that you get with a web hosting plan. If you administer a business website – it will single out your business before your website visitors or customers. For that reason you demand a reliable company that will deliver a fast and steady web hosting service.
