Low-Price Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two features you require so as to have a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your website when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is basically the disk storage space on a server where the web page files will be situated, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 associated, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both to have a running online portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it consists of 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a certain number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular period of time between 1 and 10 years. They may contain other preconditions with respect to the registrant.
Domain Hosting Solutions
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting account where you have to host it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the site files that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a certain provider and get the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosting corporations offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from one and the same web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting distributor has at least two name servers - ns1.serverfarm.me and ns2.serverfarm.me, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name offers you the opportunity to modify the nameservers and point the domain to one company or another.
The Necessity for Trustworthy website hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up email box accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and use webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web page, being available online and being enabled to set up email addresses with your domain name are the two most essential things that you get with a web hosting account. In case you host a corporate web portal – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. For that reason you demand a stable hosting vendor that will provide a dependable and steady hosting service.
