Cut-Price Web Hosting Services for Your Domain Names

There are two entities you require in order to start a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is essentially the data storage space on a web server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two similar, yet different services, and you need them both in order to have a functioning web page.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it contains two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, 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 free to register, there is a fixed number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular span of time between one and ten years. They may entail more stipulations about the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your site. You can have a domain registered with a specific company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many hosting corporations provide both services and it is more convenient to manage everything from one and the same website hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each host has at least two nameservers - ns1.cloud1.biz and ns2.cloud1.biz, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the option to alter the name servers and point the domain to one hosting vendor or another.

The Demand for Stable web hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive a number of web services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you host on the hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish email addresses such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a business site, being accessible online and being able to create e-mail boxes with your domain name are the two most important options that come with a web hosting plan. In case you own a business website – it will single out your business before your website visitors or clients. This is why you demand a trustworthy hosting vendor that will supply a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
