Reasonably Priced Hosting Services for Your Domains

There are two things you need in order to run a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your web page when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is inherently the hard disk space on a server where the web page files will be placed, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are two associated, yet different services, and you require both of them in order to have an operational web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the online portal:, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it is composed of two 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 name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a set number of TLDs to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between one and 10 years. They may contain additional preconditions with respect to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting package where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the website files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your site. You can have a domain registered with a specific provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting corporations provide both services and it is more user-friendly to handle everything from one single Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each hosting vendor has at least two name servers - and, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain name gives you the chance to modify the name server records and point the domain to one provider or another.

The Need of Dependable web hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting vendor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive various services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you keep on the server will now be accessible when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish emails such as [email protected] and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate web portal, being accessible online and being enabled to use email addresses with your domain name are the two most important options that you get with a web hosting package. In case you manage a corporate website – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. That is the reason why you require a dependable provider that will offer a dependable and stable web hosting service.
