Cheap Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two entities you require in order to kick off a website. The first one is a domain name that will open your website when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is fundamentally the storage space on a web server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two related, yet different services, and you demand both of them in order to have a functioning online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it includes two constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular spell of time between one and 10 yrs. They may entail more requirements concerning the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the site files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain company and get the hosting service from another, even though many hosting service providers provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer everything from one single web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting distributor has at least two name servers - ns1.www.althanium.com and ns2.www.althanium.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the possibility to modify the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting corporation or another.

The Demand for Reliable Hosting Solutions

Once the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting company and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain various online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you keep on the hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mail address accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web site, being accessible online and being permitted to create mailboxes with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that you get with a web hosting plan. If you administer a business web site – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or customers. This is the reason why you demand a dependable web hosting distributor that will furnish a reliable and stable web hosting service.
