Reasonably Priced Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two items you demand in order to start a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web page when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is primarily the data storage space on a web hosting server where the web page files will be located, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 associated, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them in order to have an operational web portal.
What is a Domain?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is made of two components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular period of time between one and ten years. They may entail other preconditions about the registrant.
Domain Hosting Solutions
As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will show the files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your website. You can have a domain registered with one registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting suppliers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from one and the same hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting supplier has at least 2 name servers - ns1.www.scnislimited.com and ns2.www.scnislimited.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name gives you the option to change the NS records and point the domain name to one service provider or another.
The Necessity for Trustworthy web hosting Services
The moment the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will obtain different online services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the web server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create mailboxes such as email@example.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a business online portal, being online and being able to set up email boxes with your domain are the two most important things that come with a hosting plan. If you manage a corporate web page – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. For this reason you need a trustworthy provider that will offer a dependable and steady web hosting service.
