Reasonably Priced Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two entities you need in order to run a web page. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is essentially the disk space on a web server where the site files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two connected, yet different services, and you need them both in order to have a running web site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it contains two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between 1 and ten years. They may include more stipulations with respect to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will display the site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your web site. You can have a domain registered with a specific registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosting distributors provide both services and it is more user-friendly to handle everything from one Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting service provider has at least two name servers - ns1.nekapa.org and ns2.nekapa.org, for example. The CP that you have for your domain name offers you the chance to modify the nameservers and point the domain to one web hosting provider or another.

The Necessity for Reliable web hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting provider and is added to their servers, you will obtain several services. The most essential one is that the website files that you have on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish email boxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate online portal, being available online and being permitted to use email box accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal things that you obtain with a web hosting plan. In case you host a corporate online portal – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. For this reason you demand a stable web hosting vendor that will deliver a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
