Low-Priced Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains

There are 2 things you demand so as to launch a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your online portal when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk storage space on a server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two connected, yet different services, and you demand them both to have a working website.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves two components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above 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 to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given span of time between 1 and 10 years. They may entail additional specifications when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the website files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web site. You can have a domain registered with one registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting companies offer both solutions and it is more convenient to manage everything from one website hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each service provider has at least two name servers - ns1.foxwebtools.com and ns2.foxwebtools.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the opportunity to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting corporation or another.

The Necessity for Reliable website hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting distributor and is added to their web servers, you will get a number of web services. The most important one is that the website files that you host on the hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create mail address accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a business online portal, being online and being allowed to set up e-mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most significant things that come with a web hosting package. If you host a corporate web page – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. That is why you need a reliable hosting company that will furnish a fast and steady website hosting service.
