Affordable Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 entities you need in order to establish a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your web site when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is primarily the hard disk storage space on a web server where the site files will be placed, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 linked, yet different solutions, and you demand both of them to have a functioning online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it includes 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, 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 to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between 1 and 10 years. They may include other stipulations with regard to the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a hosting package where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your web page. You can have a domain registered with a specific registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting vendors offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from one single web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting provider has at least two name servers - ns1.jdwebcrafters.com and ns2.jdwebcrafters.com, for instance. The hosting CP that you have for your domain gives you the possibility to modify the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting service provider or another.
The Necessity for Trustworthy Web Hosting Services
Once the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain several web services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you host on the web hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mailbox accounts like firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you host a personal or a business web portal, being online and being permitted to create electronic mailboxes with your domain are the two most pivotal things that you get with a website hosting package. If you own a corporate web page – it will identify your business before your website visitors or customers. That is the reason why you demand a dependable web host that will furnish a reliable and stable web hosting solution.
