Affordably Priced Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 things you demand so as to kick off a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your web site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is primarily the disk space on a web hosting server where the web site 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 different services, and you demand them both so as to have a functioning web page.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it includes 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given period of time between 1 and 10 years. They may contain more prerequisites with regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to include it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the content that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though many hosting distributors offer both services and it is more time-saving to administer all services from one and the same web hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.gibgeeks.org and ns2.gibgeeks.org, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain offers you the possibility to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting firm or another.

The Need of Trustworthy web hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting supplier and is added to their hosting servers, you will get different web services. The most essential one is that the website files that you have on the hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail address accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate site, being available online and being enabled to create mails with your domain are the two most pivotal options that you get with a website hosting account. If you have a corporate website – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. For that reason you need a trustworthy hosting supplier that will deliver a fast and stable website hosting solution.
