Low-Cost Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two items you need in order to set up a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk space on a web hosting server where the website files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet different solutions, and you demand them both in order to have a functioning online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it is made of two constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set number of top-level domain names to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular interval of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may have additional stipulations with respect to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting plan where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your site. You can have a domain name registered with one company and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of service providers offer both services and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from one single web hosting CP GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each hosting provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.jonknighthost.com and ns2.jonknighthost.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the opportunity to alter the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting supplier or another.

The Need of Stable Website Hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting distributor and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain various online services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the web server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mailboxes like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you run a personal or a business site, being accessible online and being allowed to use mail addresses with your domain name are the two most significant options that you get with a hosting plan. If you administer a corporate web page – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. For this reason you need a reliable hosting provider that will offer a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
