Cut-Rate Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two entities you need in order to open a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a hosting plan, which is essentially the disk storage space on a server where the site files will be located, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 connected, yet separate services, and you require them both in order to have a running web page.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it consists of 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may impose additional requirements regarding the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the website files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your website. You can have a domain registered with a specific company and receive the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosting corporations provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer everything from one single web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting company has at least 2 name servers - ns1.speedihosts.com and ns2.speedihosts.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the option to change the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting corporation or another.

The Need of Dependable web hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting company and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get various online services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you keep on the web server will now be accessible when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mail boxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate web portal, being accessible online and being allowed to use mail addresses with your domain name are the two most important things that you get with a hosting plan. In case you manage a corporate website – it will single out your business before your website visitors or clients. This is why you need a trustworthy hosting supplier that will deliver a reliable and steady website hosting service.
