Half-Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are 2 things you demand in order to launch a website. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the disk space on a hosting server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet different services, and you require both of them to have a working web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is made of 2 parts – 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 name. While you can select the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, 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 given spell of time between 1 and 10 years. They may involve other preconditions with regard to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to host it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your online portal. You can have a domain registered with a certain registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although lots of hosting companies provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one single website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name server records. Each hosting service provider has at least two name servers - ns1.hostinger.name and ns2.hostinger.name, for instance. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain gives you the option to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting company or another.

The Need of Dependable website hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting corporation and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive different services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you have on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up electronic mail accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you own a personal or a business online portal, being accessible online and being able to set up email mailboxes with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that come with a web hosting package. If you manage a corporate web portal – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. That is why you need a trustworthy hosting vendor that will offer a dependable and stable web hosting solution.
