Inexpensive Web Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names
There are two features you require in order to host a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web page when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is inherently the hard disk space on a hosting server where the site files will be placed, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are two interconnected, yet separate services, and you need both of them so as to have a functioning site.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it consists of 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 pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a certain number of TLDs to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain interval of time between one and ten yrs. They may contain additional stipulations with regard to the registrant.
Domain Name Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting account where you have to host it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the website files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a given company and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosting service providers offer both services and it is more time-saving to administer everything from one website hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each company has at least two nameservers - ns1.aeyweb.co.uk and ns2.aeyweb.co.uk, for example. The hosting CP that you have for your domain name offers you the opportunity to change the name server records and point the domain to one provider or another.
The Need of Reliable website hosting Services
Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will get various online services. The most important one is that the site files that you accommodate on the server will now be available online when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up email boxes such as firstname.lastname@example.org and utilize webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you manage a personal or a business web page, being online and being able to use email mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most essential options that come with a website hosting account. If you administer a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your website visitors or customers. That's why you need a stable hosting distributor that will supply a reliable and stable web hosting solution.
