Affordably Priced Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names

There are 2 features you require in order to launch a web page. The first one is a domain name that will display your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is fundamentally the disk storage space on a server where the website files will be located, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 similar, yet separate services, and you need both of them so as to have a functioning web site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it comprises 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the SLD of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a set number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between one and 10 years. They may involve more specifications when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to host it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the web site files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a particular company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosts provide both services and it is more user-friendly to handle everything from one and the same web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain 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 certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each web hosting vendor has at least two nameservers - ns1.creativewebhost.host and ns2.creativewebhost.host, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name gives you the chance to alter the name server records and point the domain name to one web hosting provider or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy Hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will get various web services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you host on the hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish email address accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate site, being available online and being able to use mail accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal options that you obtain with a web hosting package. If you run a corporate website – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. For that reason you demand a trustworthy web hosting corporation that will deliver a dependable and stable website hosting service.
