Reasonably Priced Web Hosting Solutions for Your Domains

There are 2 things you need so as to have a website. The first one is a domain name that will display your web page when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is basically the storage space on a server where the web page files will be situated, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are two related, yet different solutions, and you require both of them in order to have an operational site.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it comprises two constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, 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 set number of top-level domain names to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular period of time between 1 and ten years. They may involve additional specifications about the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to include it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the content that you host in the account, in other words it will display your site. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and get the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting suppliers provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle everything from the same web hosting CP tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each hosting supplier has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.nnuk.net and ns2.nnuk.net, for example. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain gives you the chance to modify the name server records and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.

The Need of Stable Website Hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting distributor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain various web services. The most crucial one is that the web site files that you have on the hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate online portal, being available online and being enabled to use mail addresses with your domain name are the two most important options that you obtain with a web hosting package. If you have a corporate web page – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. This is why you require a dependable company that will supply a fast and steady web hosting solution.
