Affordably Priced Hosting Services for Your Domains

There are 2 things you require in order to host an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is basically the hard disk space on a hosting server where the website files will be situated, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet different services, and you demand both of them to have a working website.

What is a Domain Name?

We offer more than 90 tlds

Prices Starts From: 0.00 /yr

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it contains 2 entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, 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 name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a certain number of TLDs to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may involve other stipulations about the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the content that you have in the account, in other words it will display your web site. You can have a domain registered with a particular provider and get the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting distributors offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from one single website hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the 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 commonly named name servers. Each provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.althanium.com and ns2.www.althanium.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain gives you the possibility to change the name server records and point the domain name to one web host or another.

The Necessity for Trustworthy Hosting Solutions

The moment the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting service provider and is added to their servers, you will obtain different online services. The most important one is that the web page files that you keep on the web server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mail boxes like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate online portal, being available online and being allowed to create emails with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that you receive with a website hosting account. If you administer a business web portal – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. That is why you need a dependable company that will provide a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
