Affordable Web Hosting Packages for Your TLDs

There are 2 things you demand so as to start a web page. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are two linked, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them in order to have a functioning site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it involves two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a certain number of TLDs to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed span of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may entail additional prerequisites in relation to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the web site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your site. You can have a domain registered with a specific registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting vendors provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer everything from a single hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are different 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 particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting supplier has at least two nameservers - ns1.webhostingxen.com and ns2.webhostingxen.com, for example. The CP that you have for your domain name gives you the opportunity to change the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting company or another.

The Need of Dependable Website Hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting service provider and is added to their servers, you will receive different online services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you keep on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create electronic mailboxes like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you have a personal or a business web site, being online and being permitted to use e-mails with your domain name are the two most important things that you get with a web hosting package. In case you run a business site – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. For that reason you need a trustworthy web hosting vendor that will furnish a fast and steady website hosting solution.
