Half-Priced Web Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names

There are 2 things you require so as to open a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your website when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk space on a web hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 linked, yet separate services, and you need both of them to have a running website.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is composed of 2 components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a finite 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 fixed period of time between one and ten yrs. They may contain additional requirements about the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname 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 web browser, it will show the web content that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your web site. You can have a domain registered with a specific registrar and get the hosting service from another, although lots of hosting firms provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer everything from the same website hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each company has at least two nameservers - ns1.okcisp.com and ns2.okcisp.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain offers you the chance to alter the name servers and point the domain to one web host or another.

The Necessity for Reliable web hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting firm and is added to their hosting servers, you will get several web services. The most crucial one is that the web site files that you have on the hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create email boxes like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate website, being online and being permitted to create email mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most pivotal options that you receive with a web hosting plan. If you administer a corporate web portal – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. This is why you require a dependable web hosting vendor that will furnish a dependable and stable web hosting service.
