Half-Priced Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names
There are two entities you need so as to have a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is essentially the data storage space on a server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting account are two interconnected, yet separate services, and you need them both to have an operational site.
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 sixty four symbols long and it is made of 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of TLDs to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between 1 and 10 years. They may include more specifications about the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to add it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will display the site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a certain registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although many web hosting companies offer both services and it is more time-saving to handle everything from a single website hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each hosting provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.onesourcehost.com and ns2.onesourcehost.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain gives you the possibility to change the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting firm or another.
The Necessity for Stable web hosting Solutions
Once the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting supplier and is added to their web servers, you will get several online services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mail address accounts like email@example.com and use webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a business web page, being online and being permitted to create mail addresses with your domain are the two most pivotal options that you get with a web hosting plan. If you own a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or clients. That is the reason why you need a reliable hosting distributor that will supply a fast and steady web hosting service.
