Cut-Rate Web Hosting Plans for Your TLDs

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

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed 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 fixed stretch of time between one and ten yrs. They may involve additional requirements regarding the registrant.

Domain Name 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 accommodate it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will exhibit the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your site. You can have a domain name registered with a specific registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting service providers offer both services and it is more convenient to administer all services from one and the same web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each web hosting provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.www.thesun.ro and ns2.www.thesun.ro, for example. The CP that you utilize for your domain gives you the possibility to modify the name servers and point the domain to one hosting corporation or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy Hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting provider and is added to their servers, you will get a number of services. The most vital one is that the site files that you keep on the hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up electronic mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being allowed to set up email mailbox accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal options that you receive with a website hosting package. If you own a business site – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. That is why you need a trustworthy hosting distributor that will supply a fast and steady website hosting service.
