Affordable Web Hosting Packages for Your Domains
There are 2 features you demand so as to own a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is inherently the disk space on a web server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 associated, yet separate services, and you demand both of them so as to have a functioning online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it is made of two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, 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 set number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between one and 10 yrs. They may entail more prerequisites in regard to the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Services
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to host it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a certain provider and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosting companies provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from the same web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each hosting firm has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.santranico.com and ns2.www.santranico.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the option to alter the name server records and point the domain to one hosting company or another.
The Need of Reliable website hosting Services
Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their web servers, you will get a number of services. The most important one is that the web site files that you have on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up mailbox accounts like firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a business web page, being accessible online and being permitted to use email accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal things that you receive with a website hosting account. In case you run a business site – it will identify your business before your visitors or customers. That is why you require a dependable web hosting service provider that will supply a reliable and stable web hosting service.
