Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names
There are 2 items you need in order to kick off an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is primarily the disk space on a web hosting server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are two interconnected, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both to have a working online portal.
What is a Domain?
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it contains 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between 1 and 10 years. They may involve additional stipulations regarding the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to host it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your online portal. You can have a domain registered with one company and receive the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting providers offer both services and it is more convenient to administer everything from one and the same web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting account are separate 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 particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting company has at least 2 name servers - ns1.thecybercreed.com and ns2.thecybercreed.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain gives you the option to alter the NS records and point the domain to one company or another.
The Demand for Trustworthy Web Hosting Services
As soon as the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting supplier and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get several web services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you host on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create mails like firstname.lastname@example.org and use webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a business web portal, being accessible online and being permitted to create e-mails with your domain name are the two most important options that you receive with a web hosting package. In case you run a business web site – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. That is why you demand a dependable hosting firm that will offer a reliable and stable website hosting solution.
