Affordably Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 items you need in order to set up an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your website when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is primarily the data storage space on a hosting server where the site files will be situated, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are two linked, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both in order to have a functioning web portal.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it contains two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The Top-Level Domains 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 impose additional requirements with regard to the registrant.
Domain Name Hosting Solutions
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a hosting package where you have to host it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a given provider and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting companies provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer everything from one single website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each web host has at least 2 name servers - ns1.www.ameriline.net and ns2.www.ameriline.net, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain name offers you the option to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting distributor or another.
The Need of Trustworthy web hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive various services. The most vital one is that the website files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mails such as firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate website, being accessible online and being enabled to use mail address accounts with your domain are the two most fundamental things that you obtain with a website hosting plan. In case you own a business website – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. That is why you require a trustworthy web hosting provider that will offer a dependable and stable web hosting solution.
