Affordable Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two features you demand so as to open a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is fundamentally the data storage space on a web server where the web site files will be placed, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 interconnected, yet separate solutions, and you require them both in order to have a running online portal.
What is a Domain?
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it involves two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed span of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may entail additional prerequisites concerning the registrant.
Domain Hosting Solutions
As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the web content that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your online portal. You can have a domain registered with a specific company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosting companies offer both services and it is more convenient to administer everything from the same web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each hosting distributor has at least two nameservers - ns1.krafttraders.com and ns2.krafttraders.com, for instance. The Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the possibility to change the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting firm or another.
The Need of Reliable Website Hosting Solutions
Once the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting firm and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain several web services. The most important one is that the website files that you accommodate 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 establish mail addresses like email@example.com and make use of webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate website, being available online and being permitted to use email box accounts with your domain name are the two most important things that you get with a website hosting package. If you manage a corporate web site – it will identify your business before your visitors or clients. For this reason you require a reliable hosting firm that will furnish a fast and steady web hosting service.
