Low-Cost Hosting Plans for Your Domains
There are 2 items you demand in order to launch an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is principally the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 associated, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both so as to have a running site.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is composed of two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of TLDs to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between one and ten yrs. They may have more specifications when it comes to the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your website. You can have a domain name registered with a given provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting service providers offer both services and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from one website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each company has at least two name servers - ns1.hostgate.org and ns2.hostgate.org, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the opportunity to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one web host or another.
The Need of Reliable web hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting vendor and is added to their web servers, you will receive several web services. The most important one is that the site files that you have on the hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up electronic mails like email@example.com and utilize webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate web site, being accessible online and being permitted to set up e-mail addresses with your domain are the two most important things that you receive with a web hosting plan. If you own a corporate web portal – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or customers. This is the reason why you need a dependable web hosting vendor that will deliver a reliable and steady web hosting service.
