Affordably Priced Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names

There are 2 items you demand so as to set up a web page. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is primarily the data storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 associated, yet separate services, and you need both of them so as to have a functioning web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it is composed of two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a certain number of TLDs to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between one and ten yrs. They may impose additional prerequisites with regard to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting package where you have to include it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the web site files that you host in the account, in other words it will open your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although numerous companies offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle all services from one and the same web hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name server records. Each hosting company has at least two name servers - ns1.affordablewebhostingus.com and ns2.affordablewebhostingus.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain offers you the possibility to change the nameservers and point the domain name to one hosting provider or another.

The Need of Trustworthy website hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting supplier and is added to their web servers, you will obtain a number of web services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mailboxes like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate web site, being accessible online and being enabled to use e-mail boxes with your domain name are the two most essential things that come with a web hosting account. If you own a business web site – it will single out your business before your visitors or clients. That's why you need a reliable hosting supplier that will offer a fast and stable hosting solution.
