Cheap Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains

There are 2 features you need so as to set up a website. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk space on a web server where the website files will be located, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are two similar, yet separate services, and you require them both so as to have a functioning web page.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it involves two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set number of top-level domain names to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain stretch of time between 1 and ten years. They may entail more stipulations in regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the web page files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your website. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosting providers provide both services and it is more convenient to manage all services from one single web hosting CP user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting provider has at least two name servers - ns1.webhosting.1dur.com and ns2.webhosting.1dur.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the chance to modify the name servers and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.

The Necessity for Reliable web hosting Solutions

The moment the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will get a number of online services. The most important one is that the web site files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create mailbox accounts such as [email protected] and use webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web site, being available online and being permitted to set up e-mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that come with a website hosting plan. In case you host a business online portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or clients. That's why you require a dependable web hosting corporation that will supply a reliable and stable website hosting solution.
