Modestly Priced Hosting Plans for Your TLDs
There are two items you need in order to start a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a hosting package, which is principally the hard disk space on a server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 related, yet separate services, and you require both of them in order to have a working web portal.
What is a Domain?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it comprises two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between one and ten years. They may contain additional stipulations in relation to the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Services
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your site. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosting providers provide both services and it is more convenient to administer everything from one single website hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting firm has at least two nameservers - ns1.xswebsites.com and ns2.xswebsites.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the opportunity to modify the NS records and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.
The Need of Dependable Website Hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting company and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive several services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up emails such as email@example.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate site, being accessible online and being permitted to use e-mails with your domain name are the two most significant things that you receive with a web hosting plan. In case you administer a corporate site – it will single out your business before your website visitors or clients. Therefore you demand a dependable hosting provider that will furnish a reliable and stable hosting service.
