Discounted Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two entities you require so as to own a site. The first one is a domain name that will open your online portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is essentially the hard disk space on a hosting server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are two linked, yet different services, and you need them both in order to have a running web page.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it includes two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to choose 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 10 years. They may have other preconditions in regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the content that you have in the account, in other words it will display your website. You can have a domain name registered with one company and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosts provide both services and it is more time-saving to manage everything from one and the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each host has at least two name servers - ns1.www.toolu.com and ns2.www.toolu.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain gives you the option to modify the name servers and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.

The Necessity for Stable web hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain different web services. The most essential one is that the site files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up email accounts such as [email protected] and use webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being permitted to set up email address accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal options that you get with a website hosting plan. If you own a corporate web page – it will identify your business before your website visitors or customers. That is why you demand a stable web hosting distributor that will supply a fast and steady web hosting service.
