Half-Priced Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two entities you demand in order to set up a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your website when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is basically the disk storage space on a web server where the web site files will be located, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 linked, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them in order to have an operational web page.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is made of two constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of TLDs to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular interval of time between 1 and 10 years. They may contain more prerequisites with respect to the registrant.
Domain Hosting Solutions
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the website files that you have in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your web site. You can have a domain registered with a specific company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting distributors offer both services and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from the same website hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting company has at least two name servers - ns1.comnetwork.biz and ns2.comnetwork.biz, for example. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain gives you the possibility to change the name server records and point the domain to one hosting provider or another.
The Demand for Stable Hosting Services
Once the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting vendor and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive several services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you have on the server will now be accessible when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mail addresses like firstname.lastname@example.org and use webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate web page, being online and being allowed to set up electronic mailboxes with your domain are the two most fundamental options that you get with a web hosting package. In case you have a business web site – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. This is the reason why you require a stable hosting vendor that will supply a fast and steady website hosting solution.
