Cut-Rate Hosting Plans for Your TLDs

There are 2 features you require so as to launch a web page. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is fundamentally the disk storage space on a server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet separate services, and you demand both of them to have a running web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it includes two constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed 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 fixed period of time between one and 10 yrs. They may have additional stipulations regarding the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting account where you have to include it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will exhibit the web page files that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a given company and get the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosting vendors offer both solutions and it is more convenient to manage all services from one and the same website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each service provider has at least two name servers - ns1.australia.raidlayer.com and ns2.australia.raidlayer.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain offers you the opportunity to alter the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting corporation or another.

The Demand for Dependable web hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting supplier and is added to their web servers, you will get a number of web services. The most important one is that the site files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish mailbox accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you have a personal or a business online portal, being available online and being enabled to set up mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most pivotal options that you receive with a web hosting account. In case you own a corporate web site – it will single out your business before your website visitors or clients. This is the reason why you require a trustworthy hosting provider that will furnish a dependable and steady web hosting service.
