Discounted Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 features you demand in order to host an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your online portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is principally the disk space on a web server where the web site files will be situated, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two linked, yet different solutions, and you need both of them in order to have an operational web site.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is composed of 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given period of time between one and ten years. They may include other preconditions with respect to the registrant.
Domain Name Hosting Solutions
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a hosting package where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the web content that you host in the account, in other words it will display your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with one registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although many web hosting suppliers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from one and the same website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting firm has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.up-hostidc.com and ns2.www.up-hostidc.com, for instance. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the option to modify the name server records and point the domain to one web hosting provider or another.
The Necessity for Stable website hosting Services
The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting distributor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive various online services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you host on the web server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish emails such as [email protected] and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate website, being online and being allowed to set up e-mail accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that come with a web hosting plan. If you own a corporate website – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or clients. This is the reason why you require a dependable hosting firm that will supply a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
