Affordably Priced Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two items you need in order to own a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your website when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is essentially the disk storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be placed, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting package are two connected, yet separate services, and you require them both so as to have a working web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it consists of two entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (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 pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain interval of time between one and 10 yrs. They may impose additional stipulations in regard to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting service providers provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle everything from the same web hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting vendor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.globalprohosting.com and ns2.globalprohosting.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain offers you the chance to modify the NS records and point the domain to one hosting service provider or another.

The Demand for Reliable Hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting firm and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get different web services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you have on the server will now be displayed when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create emails like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate website, being accessible online and being allowed to create e-mail accounts with your domain are the two most pivotal options that you obtain with a web hosting account. In case you host a business web page – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. That is why you need a stable web host that will deliver a dependable and steady hosting solution.
