Discounted Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names

There are two things you need so as to open a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is inherently the disk space on a web hosting server where the site files will be placed, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 connected, yet different services, and you require them both to have a running website.

What is a Domain?

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 instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain interval of time between one and ten years. They may involve additional specifications concerning the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a hosting plan where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will display the site files that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a particular provider and get the hosting service from another, although numerous companies offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from the same website hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each web hosting service provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.marianahost.com and ns2.www.marianahost.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name offers you the opportunity to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting firm or another.

The Necessity for Reliable Web Hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will obtain various services. The most essential one is that the website files that you accommodate on the web server will now be shown when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create mail address accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you manage a personal or a business web page, being available online and being allowed to set up electronic mailboxes with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that come with a web hosting package. In case you have a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or clients. This is the reason why you require a stable service provider that will supply a fast and steady website hosting solution.
