Inexpensive Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 things you need so as to have an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your website when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk storage space on a web server where the website files will be situated, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 connected, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them to have a functioning web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it comprises two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a certain number of TLDs to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular spell of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may impose more stipulations in relation to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will display the web page files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your web site. You can have a domain registered with a specific registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosting vendors offer both services and it is more time-saving to handle all services from one web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.ugottahost.com and ns2.ugottahost.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the option to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting company or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy Website Hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting supplier and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you have on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mailboxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web page, being online and being able to use e-mailboxes with your domain name are the two most pivotal things that you receive with a web hosting package. In case you host a corporate online portal – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. That's why you require a dependable hosting company that will furnish a reliable and stable website hosting solution.
