Inexpensive Hosting Solutions for Your Domains

There are 2 features you demand in order to start a 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 web hosting plan, which is basically the disk storage space on a server where the web site files will be placed, plus several more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two similar, yet separate solutions, and you require both of them to have a running web portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it is composed of two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of TLDs to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular span of time between 1 and 10 years. They may have other requirements with respect to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the website files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and get the hosting service from another, even though lots of service providers provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage everything from one single website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.nawazish.net and ns2.www.nawazish.net, for example. The hosting CP that you have for your domain offers you the possibility to modify the name server records and point the domain name to one service provider or another.

The Need of Stable Web Hosting Solutions

Once the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting service provider and is added to their web servers, you will get several web services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mail addresses like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a business web portal, being available online and being enabled to set up electronic mail accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that come with a website hosting account. In case you administer a corporate web page – it will single out your business before your website visitors or customers. This is why you demand a dependable hosting supplier that will provide a reliable and stable website hosting service.
