Low-Price Hosting Services for Your TLDs
There are two features you need in order to set up a website. The first one is a domain name that will show your online portal when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is basically the storage space on a hosting server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 linked, yet separate services, and you need both of them in order to have an operational site.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it comprises two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of TLDs to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed span of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may impose other requirements with regard to the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Services
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to include it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the content that you host in the account, in other words it will display your website. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting firms provide both services and it is more time-saving to administer everything from one web hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each company has at least 2 name servers - ns1.mychicagowebhosting.com and ns2.mychicagowebhosting.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain name gives you the option to modify the NS records and point the domain to one web host or another.
The Demand for Reliable Website Hosting Services
Once the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting company and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive various online services. The most vital one is that the site files that you have on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mail box accounts like firstname.lastname@example.org and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a business website, being online and being permitted to set up e-mail boxes with your domain are the two most important things that come with a web hosting package. If you manage a corporate web portal – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or customers. That is why you demand a reliable provider that will furnish a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
