Inexpensive Web Hosting Packages for Your TLDs

There are two entities you require in order to own an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web page when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is principally the storage space on a server where the site files will be situated, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet different services, and you demand both of them to have a working web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves two components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the SLD of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a certain number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may contain more preconditions about the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a hosting package where you have to add it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the content that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a specific provider and get the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosting corporations provide both services and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from the same web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each web hosting corporation has at least two nameservers - ns1.hosting.steeledesignstudio.com and ns2.hosting.steeledesignstudio.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name gives you the chance to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting service provider or another.

The Necessity for Trustworthy Web Hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting company and is added to their web servers, you will obtain several online services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you host on the web hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you host a personal or a business web site, being online and being permitted to use email addresses with your domain name are the two most essential options that you get with a website hosting plan. In case you run a corporate web portal – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. Therefore you need a reliable hosting distributor that will furnish a reliable and stable web hosting solution.
