Inexpensive Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are 2 things you require in order to own a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is fundamentally the storage space on a server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two related, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them in order to have an operational online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it comprises 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, 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 certain stretch of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may impose other specifications about the registrant.
Domain Hosting Services
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will display the web site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting corporations provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle everything from one Control Panel interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting 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 name server records. Each hosting distributor has at least two name servers - ns1.cishosting.ie and ns2.cishosting.ie, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain gives you the option to alter the name server records and point the domain to one hosting distributor or another.
The Necessity for Stable website hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive different services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the web server will now be shown when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up mails like firstname.lastname@example.org and use webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you administer a personal or a business web page, being available online and being enabled to use electronic mail accounts with your domain are the two most significant things that you obtain with a hosting plan. In case you manage a corporate site – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. That's why you need a reliable web hosting company that will furnish a fast and steady web hosting service.
