Low-Priced Hosting Services for Your Domain Names

There are 2 things you demand in order to launch a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is basically the data storage space on a server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are two related, yet separate solutions, and you require them both in order to have a running web site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it is made of two components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose 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 pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between one and 10 yrs. They may involve more preconditions in relation to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will open the website files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your web page. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting providers provide both services and it is more convenient to handle all services from the same web hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each hosting firm has at least 2 name servers - ns1.www.vip-websitehosting.com and ns2.www.vip-websitehosting.com, for example. The CP that you utilize for your domain name gives you the option to modify the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting distributor or another.

The Demand for Stable website hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting company and is added to their servers, you will get a number of services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you have on the server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up electronic mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being allowed to create emails with your domain name are the two most significant things that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you run a business online portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or customers. That is why you demand a stable hosting corporation that will provide a fast and stable web hosting service.
