Affordably Priced Web Hosting Packages for Your Domains

There are 2 things you demand in order to host a website. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is inherently the storage space on a server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are two connected, yet different solutions, and you need them both in order to have a functioning website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it consists of two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may entail other prerequisites with respect to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to host it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the content that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a specific company and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosting suppliers provide both services and it is more time-saving to handle all services from a single website hosting CP tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each hosting corporation has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.w3cloud.us and ns2.www.w3cloud.us, for example. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the possibility to alter the name servers and point the domain to one hosting distributor or another.

The Necessity for Trustworthy Web Hosting Solutions

Once the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will obtain different services. The most essential one is that the site files that you host on the web server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up mails like name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate website, being online and being permitted to create mail address accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal things that you obtain with a website hosting package. If you host a corporate website – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. Therefore you need a stable hosting vendor that will supply a dependable and stable website hosting service.
