Half-Priced Hosting Plans for Your TLDs

There are two entities you require so as to own a website. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is inherently the hard disk space on a web hosting server where the web page files will be situated, plus several more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet different services, and you demand both of them so as to have a functioning web portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it includes 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular span of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may include other prerequisites in regard to the registrant.

Domain Name 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 include it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will display the files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your site. You can have a domain registered with a particular registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting vendors provide both solutions and it is more convenient to manage everything from one and the same website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting company has at least two name servers - ns1.soswebdevelopment.com and ns2.soswebdevelopment.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name gives you the opportunity to change the name servers and point the domain name to one hosting corporation or another.

The Need of Stable Web Hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting corporation and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you host on the web server will now be shown when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish email accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you own a personal or a business web page, being accessible online and being permitted to use email address accounts with your domain name are the two most important things that you receive with a web hosting account. If you run a corporate site – it will single out your business before your visitors or clients. For this reason you need a reliable web hosting firm that will supply a fast and stable website hosting service.
