Cut-Rate Web Hosting Packages for Your Domains
There are 2 items you demand so as to own a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web site when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is inherently the disk storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 interconnected, yet separate services, and you need both of them so as to have a functioning site.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is composed of two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between one and ten years. They may entail more stipulations regarding the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a particular provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosts offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage everything from one Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting corporation has at least two nameservers - ns1.hamiltonhosting.net and ns2.hamiltonhosting.net, for instance. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the option to alter the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting company or another.
The Demand for Reliable website hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive a number of web services. The most vital one is that the website files that you have on the server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create email address accounts like email@example.com and use webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you own a personal or a business website, being accessible online and being able to use electronic mails with your domain are the two most pivotal things that you obtain with a website hosting package. If you manage a corporate web portal – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. For this reason you require a dependable web host that will supply a dependable and stable website hosting service.
