Low-Cost Hosting Services for Your Domain Names

There are two items you require so as to own a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your online portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is principally the data storage space on a hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are two associated, yet separate services, and you need both of them in order to have a running web page.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it comprises 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (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 of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between one and ten years. They may impose more requirements regarding the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a hosting plan where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the content that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a specific registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosting suppliers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from one hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting service provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.nutmeghost.com and ns2.nutmeghost.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain gives you the possibility to modify the name server records and point the domain to one web hosting firm or another.

The Demand for Reliable Hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailbox accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate online portal, being available online and being enabled to create email boxes with your domain are the two most fundamental things that come with a web hosting plan. If you own a corporate online portal – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. That is the reason why you need a dependable hosting firm that will deliver a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
