Discounted Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names

There are 2 features you require in order to host a web page. The first one is a domain name that will open your site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is primarily the disk space on a web hosting server where the site files will be situated, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 associated, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them in order to have a functioning online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

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 instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can select 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 pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may entail more preconditions with respect to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the web page files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your web site. You can have a domain registered with a specific registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although many web hosting suppliers provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage all services from one single website hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting corporation has at least two name servers - ns1.mydatahost.com and ns2.mydatahost.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name gives you the chance to change the name servers and point the domain to one hosting vendor or another.

The Demand for Reliable website hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting corporation and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive a number of services. The most essential one is that the website files that you have on the hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create emails such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you have a personal or a business site, being available online and being allowed to use mails with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that you receive with a web hosting package. In case you administer a business web site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. Therefore you require a dependable web hosting corporation that will deliver a fast and steady web hosting service.
