Modestly Priced Hosting Packages for Your TLDs
There are two features you demand so as to host a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is primarily the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two related, yet different solutions, and you demand them both in order to have a functioning web site.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it includes 2 constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a finite number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given span of time between one and ten years. They may contain more preconditions about the registrant.
Domain Web Hosting Services
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will open the web content that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although many hosting corporations offer both services and it is more convenient to handle all services from one single hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each hosting distributor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.idea-ec.com and ns2.idea-ec.com, for instance. The Control Panel that you utilize for your domain gives you the chance to alter the name servers and point the domain to one hosting service provider or another.
The Necessity for Dependable Web Hosting Solutions
The moment the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting supplier and is added to their hosting servers, you will get various services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you have on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create email boxes like firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you have a personal or a business web portal, being accessible online and being able to use email box accounts with your domain name are the two most significant options that you get with a hosting package. If you administer a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or clients. Therefore you require a dependable hosting service provider that will supply a fast and stable website hosting solution.
