Low-Price Hosting Solutions for Your Domains
There are two features you demand so as to start a website. The first one is a domain name that will show your online portal when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is inherently the disk storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be located, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are two associated, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both so as to have a working web portal.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it involves two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, 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 10 years. They may involve more specifications concerning the registrant.
Domain Hosting Services
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the website files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with one company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of providers provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from one single web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting service provider has at least two name servers - ns1.www.philwebdev.com and ns2.www.philwebdev.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain offers you the possibility to change the name server records and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.
The Necessity for Dependable Website Hosting Solutions
Once the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will receive a number of web services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create electronic mails like firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate site, being accessible online and being able to set up emails with your domain are the two most fundamental things that you obtain with a website hosting plan. If you manage a corporate online portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. For that reason you require a stable service provider that will deliver a fast and steady web hosting solution.
