Half-Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names

There are two features you need in order to establish a web site. 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 website hosting package, which is inherently the data storage space on a server where the site files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two linked, yet separate services, and you require them both in order to have a functioning online portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it involves two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed span of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may impose other prerequisites regarding the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to include it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web content that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a particular provider and get the hosting service from another, although many hosts offer both services and it is more time-saving to administer everything from a single web hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.mywebs.cloud and ns2.mywebs.cloud, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name gives you the option to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one provider or another.

The Demand for Stable Hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting company and is added to their web servers, you will get a number of services. The most vital one is that the website files that you keep on the web server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail boxes like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate web page, being available online and being allowed to set up e-mails with your domain are the two most important things that you get with a website hosting package. If you own a corporate web page – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. This is the reason why you demand a dependable service provider that will offer a dependable and stable hosting service.
