Affordable Web Hosting Services for Your Domains
There are two features you require so as to host a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your website when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is inherently the storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus several more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 related, yet different services, and you require both of them to have an operational website.
What is a Domain?
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it involves two components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name 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 certain interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may include additional prerequisites in relation to the registrant.
Domain Name Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will display the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a particular provider and obtain the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting companies offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from one web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each provider has at least two name servers - ns1.www.pepcube.com and ns2.www.pepcube.com, for example. The Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the option to change the name server records and point the domain name to one hosting corporation or another.
The Demand for Reliable Hosting Services
The moment the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting distributor and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain several online services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you have on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up email mailbox accounts like firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you host a personal or a business site, being accessible online and being allowed to create email accounts with your domain are the two most pivotal options that you get with a web hosting plan. If you administer a business online portal – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. This is why you require a reliable provider that will offer a dependable and stable web hosting service.
