Affordable Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 items you need so as to open an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be situated, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 linked, yet different solutions, and you demand them both to have a functioning website.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it includes two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a certain 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 years. They may include additional preconditions concerning the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Services
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting distributors provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from a single web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting service provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.www.stclarewebhosting.com and ns2.www.stclarewebhosting.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name gives you the chance to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting company or another.
The Demand for Stable web hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting firm and is added to their hosting servers, you will get different online services. The most vital one is that the site files that you have on the hosting server will now be accessible when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create mails such as email@example.com and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being enabled to set up emails with your domain are the two most significant options that you receive with a web hosting package. If you run a corporate web site – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. That's why you demand a dependable web hosting supplier that will offer a fast and stable web hosting service.
