Cheap Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 features you require in order to have a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a server where the site files will be located, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 similar, yet separate services, and you demand both of them so as to have a functioning website.

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it consists of two constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between 1 and 10 years. They may involve more requirements about the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a hosting plan where you have to host it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the web content that you have in the account, in other words it will show your site. You can have a domain name registered with a specific registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosting service providers offer both services and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from a single website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each host has at least 2 name servers - ns1.bestpricehost.net and ns2.bestpricehost.net, for example. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name offers you the opportunity to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one web hosting firm or another.

The Necessity for Dependable Web Hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting corporation and is added to their web servers, you will get various web services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you host on the web server will now be accessible when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate site, being accessible online and being allowed to use email mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most significant options that you get with a web hosting plan. If you manage a corporate site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. Therefore you need a dependable hosting supplier that will furnish a fast and stable web hosting service.
