Half-Priced Hosting Services for Your Domain Names

There are 2 features you need so as to have a website. The first one is a domain name that will display your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is inherently the hard disk space on a server where the web site files will be placed, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are two interconnected, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them in order to have a functioning web page.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a set number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between one and 10 years. They may include additional stipulations concerning the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting plan where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will open the web site files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your online portal. You can have a domain registered with a certain provider and get the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosting corporations provide both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from one and the same web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting supplier has at least two name servers - ns1.simplistic.reseller-hosting-themes.com and ns2.simplistic.reseller-hosting-themes.com, for instance. The CP that you use for your domain name gives you the opportunity to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one service provider or another.

The Necessity for Stable web hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting company and is added to their servers, you will obtain various online services. The most vital one is that the website files that you keep on the server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up mails like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a business web portal, being online and being allowed to use email box accounts with your domain are the two most essential things that you get with a web hosting account. In case you run a business web page – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or customers. For this reason you demand a stable hosting corporation that will offer a reliable and stable web hosting solution.
