Affordable Hosting Plans for Your Domains
There are 2 entities you require so as to launch a website. The first one is a domain name that will show your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is principally the hard disk space on a server where the site files will be located, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet separate services, and you need both of them in order to have a working web portal.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves two entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between 1 and 10 years. They may impose other stipulations regarding the registrant.
Domain 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 add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will open the web page files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your site. You can have a domain name registered with a particular registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting distributors provide both services and it is more user-friendly to handle everything from one and the same website hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.directbizhost.com and ns2.directbizhost.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name offers you the option to alter the name server records and point the domain name to one web host or another.
The Demand for Trustworthy Hosting Solutions
The moment the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting company and is added to their servers, you will receive several web services. The most important one is that the web page files that you host on the server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mail addresses like firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a business site, being accessible online and being able to use email boxes with your domain are the two most pivotal options that come with a web hosting account. In case you have a business web portal – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or clients. That is why you require a stable web host that will offer a reliable and steady website hosting solution.
