Reasonably Priced Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two entities you need in order to set up a web page. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is basically the data storage space on a hosting server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 linked, yet separate services, and you need them both in order to have a functioning website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it involves 2 entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may impose other specifications regarding the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will exhibit the files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web page. You can have a domain registered with a particular company and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting providers provide both services and it is more time-saving to administer everything from the same website hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting corporation has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.techsur.com and ns2.techsur.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name gives you the chance to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting provider or another.

The Demand for Reliable web hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting vendor and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most crucial one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create email addresses such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web site, being accessible online and being able to use email accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal things that you receive with a website hosting package. If you host a corporate online portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or clients. That is why you demand a stable service provider that will furnish a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
