Cut-Rate Web Hosting Plans for Your TLDs

There are 2 features you need so as to run a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your website when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus several more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting package are two connected, yet different solutions, and you need them both to have a functioning web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular span of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may entail additional requirements in relation to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting vendors provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from a single CP GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name servers. Each provider has at least two name servers - ns1.www.all-starhosting.com and ns2.www.all-starhosting.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain offers you the possibility to change the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting provider or another.

The Necessity for Reliable website hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain various services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you have on the web server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailboxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate web site, being online and being allowed to set up mail accounts with your domain name are the two most essential things that come with a website hosting package. In case you own a corporate web page – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or customers. That's why you need a trustworthy company that will provide a fast and stable web hosting service.
