Inexpensive Hosting Solutions for Your Domain Names

There are 2 entities you need in order to set up a site. 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 website hosting package, which is primarily the data storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two connected, yet separate services, and you demand them both so as to have a running web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of TLDs to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between one and 10 years. They may have more prerequisites regarding the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a hosting package where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your web portal. You can have a domain registered with one company and obtain the hosting service from another, although many hosting suppliers provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle all services from a single hosting CP tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each host has at least 2 name servers - ns1.domainmonkee.com and ns2.domainmonkee.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain offers you the opportunity to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting vendor or another.

The Demand for Dependable web hosting Solutions

Once the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive different services. The most essential one is that the website files that you accommodate on the web server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mail box accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a business site, being accessible online and being able to create email address accounts with your domain name are the two most important options that come with a hosting account. In case you manage a business web page – it will single out your business before your website visitors or customers. That's why you need a stable service provider that will supply a reliable and steady web hosting service.
