Reasonably Priced Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two entities you need in order to run a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web site when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is principally the hard disk space on a web server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are two interconnected, yet different services, and you require both of them to have an operational site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it includes 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain interval of time between one and 10 yrs. They may include other specifications concerning the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a particular registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting suppliers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from one CP interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each service provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.harryhost.com and ns2.www.harryhost.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain gives you the opportunity to change the name server records and point the domain to one hosting corporation or another.

The Demand for Stable website hosting Solutions

The moment the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting distributor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain different online services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you keep on the hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create email accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate online portal, being online and being permitted to create electronic mails with your domain name are the two most important options that come with a web hosting plan. If you have a business web page – it will identify your business before your visitors or clients. Therefore you demand a stable web hosting vendor that will deliver a fast and steady website hosting solution.
