Modestly Priced Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 entities you require so as to start an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your online portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is inherently the disk storage space on a hosting server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are two interconnected, yet separate solutions, and you need them both in order to have a running website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it includes two parts – a Top-Level Domain (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. While you can choose the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of TLDs to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may have additional specifications about the registrant.

Domain Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your website. You can have a domain name registered with one registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting service providers offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer everything from the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each hosting corporation has at least two name servers - ns1.www.althanium.com and ns2.www.althanium.com, for instance. The CP that you use for your domain name gives you the option to change the name servers and point the domain to one hosting distributor or another.

The Need of Reliable website hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting supplier and is added to their web servers, you will receive various services. The most crucial one is that the web site files that you host on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail box accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate site, being accessible online and being allowed to create e-mail address accounts with your domain are the two most pivotal options that come with a web hosting account. If you manage a business website – it will single out your business before your website visitors or customers. This is the reason why you demand a stable web hosting company that will offer a fast and stable web hosting service.
