Low-Price Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names
There are 2 things you demand so as to open a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is basically the data storage space on a server where the website files will be located, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are two related, yet different solutions, and you need them both in order to have a functioning web page.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it includes two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the SLD of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain interval of time between one and 10 years. They may entail additional stipulations with regard to the registrant.
Domain Web Hosting Solutions
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will display the content that you have in the account, in other words it will open your web portal. You can have a domain registered with one company and get the hosting service from another, although many web hosting companies provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage everything from one CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting service provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.wantok.click and ns2.wantok.click, for instance. The hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name offers you the possibility to alter the NS records and point the domain to one hosting company or another.
The Need of Dependable web hosting Services
Once the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain various services. The most important one is that the site files that you keep on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mails like firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a business web page, being available online and being permitted to create email mailboxes with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that come with a web hosting account. If you own a business web portal – it will single out your business before your website visitors or clients. Therefore you demand a stable provider that will deliver a dependable and steady website hosting solution.
