Low-Priced Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 things you need in order to host a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web page when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is basically the storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are two similar, yet separate services, and you demand both of them to have a working web portal.
What is a Domain?
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it includes two components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may include additional specifications about the registrant.
Domain Hosting Services
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the web site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web site. You can have a domain registered with a specific provider and receive the hosting service from another, although many hosting suppliers offer both solutions and it is more convenient to manage all services from one single web hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting vendor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.happyhostinguk.com and ns2.www.happyhostinguk.com, for instance. The hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the opportunity to change the name servers and point the domain name to one provider or another.
The Demand for Trustworthy website hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting company and is added to their servers, you will receive various services. The most vital one is that the website files that you keep on the web server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create electronic mails like [email protected] and utilize webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a business web site, being accessible online and being permitted to set up e-mail accounts with your domain name are the two most essential options that you obtain with a web hosting account. If you host a corporate web portal – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or customers. That is why you demand a stable provider that will deliver a reliable and steady web hosting service.
