Inexpensive Hosting Services for Your Domains

There are two features you require so as to host a site. 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 package, which is primarily the hard disk space on a web server where the website files will be placed, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 interconnected, yet different solutions, and you need both of them in order to have a functioning web portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it includes two entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain spell of time between 1 and ten years. They may contain additional requirements about the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a particular company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting providers offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one and the same web hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting distributor has at least two name servers - ns1.www.americanresellers.com and ns2.www.americanresellers.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name offers you the option to change the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting vendor or another.

The Necessity for Trustworthy website hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting company and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive a number of web services. The most essential one is that the website files that you keep on the web server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mails like name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a business web page, being available online and being enabled to set up email mailboxes with your domain are the two most pivotal things that you receive with a web hosting account. If you have a business website – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. For that reason you require a dependable web hosting supplier that will supply a reliable and stable website hosting solution.
