Affordable Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names
There are two features you need in order to set up a site. The first one is a domain name that will open your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is primarily the disk space on a web server where the site files will be located, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet different solutions, and you require them both so as to have a working site.
What is a Domain?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it contains 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the SLD of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given period of time between one and 10 yrs. They may involve additional specifications with respect to the registrant.
Domain Name Hosting Services
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to include it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will show the content that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web site. You can have a domain name registered with one registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although lots of hosting suppliers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to handle everything from the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.scnislimited.com and ns2.www.scnislimited.com, for instance. The hosting CP that you have for your domain gives you the option to change the nameservers and point the domain name to one host or another.
The Need of Stable website hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their hosting servers, you will get various web services. The most crucial one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail addresses such as firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you manage a personal or a business site, being available online and being enabled to use e-mails with your domain are the two most fundamental things that you receive with a website hosting account. In case you run a business web page – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. This is the reason why you need a trustworthy company that will provide a reliable and steady hosting service.
