Budget Web Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names
There are two entities you demand so as to start a site. The first one is a domain name that will open your website when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is primarily the disk storage space on a server where the web page files will be located, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet different solutions, and you need them both so as to have a functioning online portal.
What is a Domain?
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it contains two components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular spell of time between one and ten years. They may entail additional specifications in relation to the registrant.
Domain Hosting Solutions
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the website files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your web page. You can have a domain name registered with one registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting providers provide both solutions and it is more convenient to manage all services from one single website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name server records. Each hosting distributor has at least two nameservers - ns1.wehost.ws and ns2.wehost.ws, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain name gives you the possibility to alter the NS records and point the domain to one hosting company or another.
The Necessity for Dependable web hosting Services
Once the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting distributor and is added to their hosting servers, you will get several web services. The most vital one is that the site files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create email mailboxes such as email@example.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate website, being available online and being allowed to create email boxes with your domain are the two most significant options that come with a web hosting package. If you host a corporate web site – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. That's why you need a trustworthy service provider that will provide a reliable and stable website hosting service.
