Cut-Price Web Hosting Services for Your Domains
There are two items you require so as to set up a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is fundamentally the hard disk storage space on a server where the web page files will be located, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two interconnected, yet different solutions, and you demand both of them in order to have a working web portal.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it includes 2 pieces – 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. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a finite number of TLDs to select from. The TLDs 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 additional requirements about the registrant.
Domain Web Hosting Solutions
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the content that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your online portal. You can have a domain registered with one registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting firms offer both solutions and it is more convenient to administer all services from one single web hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each hosting distributor has at least two name servers - ns1.islehosting.com and ns2.islehosting.com, for example. The Control Panel that you use for your domain name gives you the opportunity to modify the name server records and point the domain name to one web hosting distributor or another.
The Demand for Dependable website hosting Services
Once the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting distributor and is added to their web servers, you will receive various web services. The most crucial one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the web server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up mail address accounts like firstname.lastname@example.org and use webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you run a personal or a business site, being available online and being permitted to set up e-mail addresses with your domain are the two most fundamental things that you receive with a web hosting account. If you host a corporate web page – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. That is the reason why you require a trustworthy web hosting company that will deliver a dependable and stable web hosting service.
