Discounted Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two things you need so as to host an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is principally the disk space on a web hosting server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 associated, yet different solutions, and you need them both to have a running site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises two constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may contain other stipulations about the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to host it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the web site files that you host in the account, in other words it will open your website. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosts offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer everything from a single Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each company has at least two nameservers - ns1.vortex-hosting.com and ns2.vortex-hosting.com, for instance. The hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the possibility to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting distributor or another.

The Necessity for Dependable Website Hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting firm and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you accommodate on the web server will now be accessible when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mails like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a business web page, being accessible online and being enabled to use e-mail boxes with your domain name are the two most significant things that you obtain with a web hosting package. If you run a corporate site – it will identify your business before your website visitors or customers. This is the reason why you require a trustworthy provider that will furnish a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
