Low-Priced Web Hosting Packages for Your Domains

There are two things you need in order to open a web site. The first one is a domain name that will show your website when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is primarily the data storage space on a server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting package are two similar, yet separate solutions, and you require them both in order to have an operational website.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it is made of 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between one and ten years. They may have additional specifications in relation to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a hosting package where you have to host it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will show the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web site. You can have a domain registered with a certain company and receive the hosting service from another, even though many providers offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle all services from a single web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.buydomainwebhosting.com and ns2.buydomainwebhosting.com, for example. The CP that you have for your domain offers you the option to modify the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting vendor or another.

The Necessity for Reliable web hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will obtain different online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you host on the web hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up email mailboxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a business website, being accessible online and being enabled to use email mailboxes with your domain are the two most fundamental things that come with a web hosting account. If you have a business site – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or clients. Therefore you require a trustworthy hosting supplier that will offer a reliable and stable web hosting solution.
