Low-Priced Hosting Packages for Your Domains
There are two entities you require so as to establish an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is basically the disk space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 related, yet separate services, and you require both of them to have a running online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it comprises two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the second-level domain name 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 particular period of time between one and ten years. They may involve additional prerequisites about the registrant.
Domain Hosting Services
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting account where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain provider and get the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosting service providers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from the same web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each web hosting provider has at least two name servers - ns1.hostingallstar.com and ns2.hostingallstar.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name gives you the possibility to change the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting company or another.
The Demand for Reliable website hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting company and is added to their web servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most vital one is that the website files that you keep on the web server will now be available online when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailboxes such as email@example.com and utilize webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate site, being available online and being enabled to use e-mail boxes with your domain are the two most fundamental things that come with a web hosting account. If you host a corporate online portal – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. For this reason you require a dependable web hosting supplier that will furnish a reliable and steady website hosting service.
