Half-Priced Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two features you need in order to start a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is inherently the hard disk space on a web server where the website files will be situated, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 similar, 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 pick to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of two entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of TLDs to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given period of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may have other specifications in regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web site files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain company and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosting corporations offer both services and it is more user-friendly to handle everything from a single web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting distributor has at least two name servers - ns1.www.achemahost.com and ns2.www.achemahost.com, for instance. The CP that you use for your domain gives you the option to alter the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting vendor or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy website hosting Solutions

Once the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will obtain several web services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you have on the hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create electronic mail accounts such as [email protected] and use webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you run a personal or a business website, being accessible online and being able to use email accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that you obtain with a website hosting plan. In case you host a business web site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. That is why you need a trustworthy provider that will provide a fast and steady web hosting service.
