Budget Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains

There are 2 things you require so as to run a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is fundamentally the disk storage space on a web server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 associated, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them so as to have a working site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is made of two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed stretch of time between one and 10 years. They may contain other prerequisites in relation to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the web page files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your online portal. You can have a domain registered with a certain company and get the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosts provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each web hosting firm has at least two name servers - ns1.nerdykiwi.com and ns2.nerdykiwi.com, for example. The hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the option to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting firm or another.

The Demand for Stable Website Hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting firm and is added to their servers, you will obtain a number of services. The most important one is that the website files that you accommodate on the web server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create email box accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you manage a personal or a business website, being available online and being enabled to set up email boxes with your domain are the two most essential options that you obtain with a website hosting package. In case you administer a business web site – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. That is why you demand a reliable web hosting firm that will provide a dependable and steady website hosting solution.
