Cut-Rate Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two items you need in order to start a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your site when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is primarily the disk space on a server where the web page files will be placed, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two linked, yet different solutions, and you need them both so as to have a working site.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between one and 10 years. They may involve additional stipulations with respect to the registrant.
Domain Web Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain company and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosting suppliers provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer everything from one website hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting distributor has at least 2 name servers - ns1.domainspaceregistry.com.au and ns2.domainspaceregistry.com.au, for instance. The Control Panel that you use for your domain name offers you the opportunity to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting distributor or another.
The Need of Trustworthy web hosting Solutions
The moment the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting company and is added to their servers, you will receive various web services. The most essential one is that the site files that you have on the web server will now be shown when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up mail addresses like email@example.com and make use of webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you own a personal or a business online portal, being online and being allowed to create e-mail boxes with your domain name are the two most pivotal things that you receive with a hosting plan. In case you host a business web page – it will identify your business before your visitors or clients. That is why you need a trustworthy service provider that will deliver a dependable and steady hosting service.
