Cheap Hosting Packages for Your Domains

There are two entities you require in order to establish a web page. The first one is a domain name that will display your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is inherently the disk space on a hosting server where the web site files will be located, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 linked, yet different services, and you need them both so as to have an operational web portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it contains two entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed stretch of time between 1 and ten years. They may include more specifications when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the content that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your website. You can have a domain name registered with one provider and receive the hosting service from another, although many web hosting vendors offer both services and it is more time-saving to manage everything from one web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.pc021hosting.com and ns2.pc021hosting.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain offers you the chance to alter the name server records and point the domain to one hosting supplier or another.

The Necessity for Reliable Web Hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting company and is added to their servers, you will get various online services. The most vital one is that the site files that you host on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create mail addresses like name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate online portal, being online and being able to use electronic mailboxes with your domain name are the two most significant options that you get with a web hosting account. If you host a corporate website – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or customers. For that reason you demand a trustworthy host that will provide a reliable and stable web hosting solution.
