Half-Priced Hosting Services for Your Domain Names

There are 2 items you demand so as to kick off a site. The first one is a domain name that will open your online portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be situated, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 linked, yet different solutions, and you require both of them so as to have a working web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between 1 and 10 years. They may contain more requirements when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the content that you host in the account, in other words it will display your web site. You can have a domain name registered with one registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although many hosting service providers provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from a single hosting CP tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan 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 so-called name server records. Each web hosting service provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.www.hugohost.net and ns2.www.hugohost.net, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the option to modify the name server records and point the domain name to one service provider or another.

The Need of Stable web hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive a number of web services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mailbox accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate web site, being accessible online and being able to set up email accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal things that you obtain with a website hosting account. In case you run a corporate web site – it will single out your business before your visitors or clients. That's why you require a trustworthy hosting service provider that will deliver a reliable and stable hosting solution.
