Affordably Priced Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two things you need in order to host a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is fundamentally the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the site files will be situated, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 associated, yet separate services, and you need both of them so as to have a working website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is composed of 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between one and ten yrs. They may contain more stipulations in relation to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will display the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your website. You can have a domain name registered with a particular registrar and get the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosting suppliers offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from one and the same CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting service provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.mnistrat.co.uk and ns2.mnistrat.co.uk, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the chance to change the name server records and point the domain to one web hosting distributor or another.

The Need of Dependable web hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting firm and is added to their web servers, you will obtain various online services. The most important one is that the web page files that you have on the server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail box accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate web portal, being available online and being allowed to use email boxes with your domain are the two most cardinal things that you receive with a web hosting package. If you administer a corporate online portal – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. For this reason you demand a stable hosting company that will supply a reliable and stable web hosting solution.
