Budget Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains

There are 2 things you demand in order to run a web site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk space on a web server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 associated, yet different solutions, and you demand them both so as to have a functioning website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it comprises two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given period of time between one and 10 yrs. They may have additional stipulations regarding the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting account where you have to host it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will show the files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your website. You can have a domain registered with one company and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosting vendors offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle all services from one web hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting distributor has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.funhostr.com and ns2.www.funhostr.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain offers you the possibility to modify the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting vendor or another.

The Demand for Stable web hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting firm and is added to their servers, you will get different online services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you host on the server will now be shown when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail address accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate site, being available online and being able to set up electronic mail accounts with your domain are the two most significant options that you receive with a web hosting plan. If you own a corporate web portal – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. This is why you need a trustworthy company that will supply a dependable and steady web hosting service.
