Moderately Priced Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two items you demand in order to set up an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your website when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a hosting account, which is principally the hard disk space on a hosting server where the site files will be located, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are two associated, yet separate services, and you require them both so as to have a functioning web site.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is made of two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular span of time between one and ten years. They may include more specifications in relation to the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the website files that you have in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though many providers provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage all services from one single website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting corporation has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.iwebclouds.com and ns2.www.iwebclouds.com, for instance. The hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the chance to modify the name servers and point the domain to one hosting supplier or another.
The Need of Dependable Website Hosting Solutions
Once the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting service provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get a number of web services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you host on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up emails such as email@example.com and make use of webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a business online portal, being available online and being permitted to use email accounts with your domain name are the two most pivotal options that you obtain with a website hosting plan. In case you run a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or customers. That's why you need a dependable hosting supplier that will provide a reliable and stable web hosting service.
