Modestly Priced Hosting Packages for Your Domains
There are 2 things you demand in order to launch a web site. The first one is a domain name that will show your online portal when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is basically the disk storage space on a server where the website files will be situated, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 connected, yet different services, and you demand both of them so as to have a functioning online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is made of 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between one and ten yrs. They may impose additional stipulations about the registrant.
Domain Web Hosting Solutions
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the web content that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a certain provider and get the hosting service from another, even though many hosting companies offer both services and it is more convenient to manage everything from one website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web 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 NS records. Each host has at least two nameservers - ns1.hosting.superiorseostrategy.com and ns2.hosting.superiorseostrategy.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name gives you the possibility to alter the name server records and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.
The Need of Trustworthy Website Hosting Solutions
The moment the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting company and is added to their servers, you will receive several online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you keep on the web server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up email boxes like [email protected] and make use of webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you host a personal or a business web portal, being accessible online and being allowed to set up emails with your domain are the two most important things that you get with a web hosting plan. If you own a business online portal – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. This is why you need a stable web hosting company that will deliver a fast and steady web hosting solution.
