Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Domains

There are 2 entities you require in order to set up a website. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a hosting package, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a web server where the website files will be located, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 connected, yet different services, and you require them both so as to have a working web page.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it contains two entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above 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 name of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set 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 particular spell of time between one and 10 yrs. They may impose more specifications regarding the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to host it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the web site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your site. You can have a domain name registered with one registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though many hosts provide both solutions and it is more convenient to manage everything from the same web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting supplier has at least 2 name servers - ns1.hostingviking.com and ns2.hostingviking.com, for instance. The CP that you have for your domain name gives you the chance to change the name server records and point the domain name to one hosting company or another.

The Need of Trustworthy Web Hosting Solutions

Once the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting vendor and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive several web services. The most crucial one is that the web site files that you host on the web server will now be accessible when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mailboxes like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate web page, being accessible online and being allowed to create email address accounts with your domain are the two most fundamental things that come with a website hosting account. In case you run a business web site – it will single out your business before your visitors or clients. That's why you need a trustworthy web hosting distributor that will supply a dependable and steady web hosting service.
