Discounted Web Hosting Packages for Your TLDs

There are 2 things you demand so as to launch a web site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a server where the web page files will be placed, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 related, yet separate services, and you demand them both in order to have a working site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it includes two entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, 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 is available for registration, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed span of time between one and 10 yrs. They may have more specifications when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your web site. You can have a domain registered with a given company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting corporations provide both solutions and it is more convenient to handle all services from a single web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting service provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.8vias.com and ns2.8vias.com, for instance. The hosting CP that you utilize for your domain gives you the opportunity to change the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting firm or another.

The Need of Reliable Web Hosting Solutions

Once the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting service provider and is added to their servers, you will obtain various online services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you have on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create mail address accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a business site, being available online and being enabled to use email address accounts with your domain are the two most important options that you receive with a website hosting plan. If you manage a business web site – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. That is the reason why you need a stable web hosting service provider that will provide a dependable and stable web hosting service.
