Reasonably Priced Hosting Services for Your Domain Names
There are two things you require in order to have a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web page when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is principally the disk space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be situated, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting account are two connected, yet different solutions, and you require them both to have a working online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between one and 10 years. They may entail additional stipulations regarding the registrant.
Domain Name Hosting Solutions
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to host it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will show the web content that you host in the account, in other words it will show your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosting vendors offer both services and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from one and the same website hosting CP GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting company has at least 2 name servers - ns1.cyber16.com and ns2.cyber16.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name gives you the chance to modify the name servers and point the domain to one hosting company or another.
The Need of Reliable Hosting Solutions
Once the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting supplier and is added to their web servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most vital one is that the website files that you keep on the server will now be accessible when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish email accounts such as email@example.com and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you host a personal or a business online portal, being accessible online and being allowed to create mailboxes with your domain name are the two most pivotal things that you obtain with a website hosting account. In case you administer a corporate site – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. For this reason you need a stable service provider that will furnish a fast and stable website hosting solution.
