Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 items you demand so as to set up a web page. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a hosting account, which is principally the data storage space on a server where the web page files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are two related, yet separate services, and you need them both so as to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is composed of two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, 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 is free to register, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain stretch of time between one and 10 yrs. They may entail more stipulations regarding the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the web page files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with one registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosting distributors provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer everything from one single website hosting CP GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting company has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.nyc-webdesign.com and ns2.www.nyc-webdesign.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name gives you the option to modify the NS records and point the domain to one hosting corporation or another.

The Need of Stable website hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting company and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get various services. The most important one is that the site files that you host on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish mails such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a business online portal, being accessible online and being able to create mailbox accounts with your domain are the two most fundamental options that you receive with a web hosting package. If you manage a corporate website – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. That is the reason why you require a stable web hosting company that will deliver a reliable and steady hosting service.
