Reasonably Priced Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two items you need so as to own a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your website when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is inherently the disk storage space on a web server where the site files will be placed, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 associated, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both in order to have an operational web site.

What is a Domain?

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 instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it includes two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, 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 to be anything that is available for registration, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain stretch of time between one and 10 yrs. They may contain other preconditions regarding the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to host it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web page files that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a given provider and get the hosting service from another, although many web hosts provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer all services from the same Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.fasttuna.com and ns2.fasttuna.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the chance to change the name servers and point the domain to one hosting supplier or another.

The Demand for Stable web hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting supplier and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain several services. The most vital one is that the website files that you accommodate on the web server will now be shown when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create electronic mails such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate website, being available online and being enabled to set up mails with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that you get with a web hosting package. In case you run a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or customers. This is the reason why you demand a dependable service provider that will offer a dependable and steady hosting solution.
