Affordably Priced Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two features you demand so as to launch a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 interconnected, yet separate solutions, and you require them both in order to have a functioning website.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it comprises 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain stretch of time between one and ten years. They may involve more requirements when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to host it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the web content that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although many companies provide both solutions and it is more convenient to manage all services from one and the same web hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each hosting vendor has at least two nameservers - ns1.3rdcoastdomains.com and ns2.3rdcoastdomains.com, for instance. The CP that you utilize for your domain gives you the possibility to change the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting company or another.

The Necessity for Dependable web hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting supplier and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive several web services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you keep on the server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up electronic mail accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being enabled to create mail accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal things that come with a website hosting plan. In case you have a business web portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or clients. For that reason you require a trustworthy hosting distributor that will furnish a fast and stable website hosting solution.
