Cut-Price Hosting Services for Your Domains
There are 2 things you demand so as to host a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is basically the hard disk space on a server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 connected, yet different solutions, and you need them both so as to have a running site.
What is a Domain?
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it comprises 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between one and ten years. They may entail other stipulations regarding the registrant.
Domain Hosting Services
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the website files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your online portal. You can have a domain registered with a particular company and receive the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting suppliers provide both services and it is more time-saving to handle everything from the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each web host has at least 2 name servers - ns1.darkforged.net and ns2.darkforged.net, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name offers you the option to modify the name server records and point the domain name to one hosting service provider or another.
The Demand for Trustworthy web hosting Solutions
The moment the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting service provider and is added to their web servers, you will obtain different online services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you host on the server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mailbox accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a business web portal, being accessible online and being allowed to set up electronic mailboxes with your domain name are the two most significant options that come with a web hosting account. If you own a corporate web portal – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. Therefore you need a reliable web hosting provider that will deliver a fast and steady web hosting service.
