Low-Price Hosting Services for Your Domains


There are 2 entities you need in order to run a website. The first one is a domain name that will open your website when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the disk storage 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 package are two interconnected, yet separate services, and you require them both in order to have a functioning web page.

What is a Domain Name?

We offer more than 80 tlds

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is composed of two constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular spell of time between one and 10 yrs. They may contain additional stipulations with regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a hosting account where you have to add it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the files that you host in the account, in other words it will open your site. You can have a domain registered with one registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting distributors provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer everything from the same web hosting CP tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each web hosting corporation has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.thegreat.host and ns2.thegreat.host, for example. The hosting CP that you utilize for your domain gives you the option to modify the name server records and point the domain to one hosting distributor or another.

The Demand for Dependable Web Hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting vendor and is added to their web servers, you will get a number of services. The most vital one is that the site files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail boxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate site, being available online and being able to set up mail address accounts with your domain are the two most significant things that you get with a website hosting package. In case you administer a business web site – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. Therefore you need a reliable host that will furnish a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
