Affordably Priced Web Hosting Services for Your Domain Names
There are 2 features you need in order to have a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your site when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is principally the hard disk space on a web server where the site files will be placed, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two connected, yet separate services, and you demand them both to have a running website.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is made of 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set 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 certain stretch of time between one and 10 yrs. They may impose other requirements in regard to the registrant.
Domain Name Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will display the site files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your web page. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosting providers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to handle everything from a single website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each web hosting distributor has at least two name servers - ns1.store.extec.cm and ns2.store.extec.cm, for instance. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the opportunity to modify the NS records and point the domain to one hosting vendor or another.
The Demand for Reliable web hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting distributor and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain different web services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you have on the web server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish electronic mails like email@example.com and utilize webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate web site, being online and being enabled to use email address accounts with your domain are the two most important things that you receive with a website hosting package. In case you own a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or customers. This is the reason why you need a trustworthy hosting company that will provide a fast and stable web hosting service.
