Low-Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names

There are 2 features you require so as to open a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is primarily the storage space on a server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 interconnected, yet separate services, and you need both of them to have a working website.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is composed of 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between one and 10 yrs. They may have more prerequisites when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to host it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will display the web site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your website. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although many web hosting companies offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to handle everything from one single website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each hosting vendor has at least 2 name servers - ns1.www.ctrsite.com and ns2.www.ctrsite.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain gives you the option to modify the name servers and point the domain name to one hosting supplier or another.

The Necessity for Reliable web hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting firm and is added to their web servers, you will get several online services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you have on the hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailbox accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you host a personal or a business online portal, being accessible online and being able to create e-mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most pivotal things that you obtain with a website hosting package. In case you have a corporate web site – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. This is the reason why you require a stable hosting supplier that will supply a reliable and steady website hosting solution.
