Affordable Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are 2 entities you demand in order to set up a website. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is primarily the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the site files will be placed, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet different services, and you require both of them to have a running site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it comprises 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of TLDs to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between one and 10 yrs. They may include other stipulations about the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the website files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a certain provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting suppliers provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer everything from a single website hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each hosting company has at least two name servers - ns1.www.imatrixict.net.au and ns2.www.imatrixict.net.au, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name offers you the opportunity to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one web hosting service provider or another.

The Necessity for Stable Hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting corporation and is added to their web servers, you will get several online services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you have on the hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create email boxes like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate web site, being available online and being allowed to use e-mail box accounts with your domain are the two most essential things that you get with a web hosting plan. If you host a corporate online portal – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. This is why you demand a reliable service provider that will offer a dependable and stable web hosting solution.
