Half-Priced Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names

There are two things you demand in order to open a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your website when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a web hosting server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two related, yet separate solutions, and you need them both so as to have a functioning site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it includes 2 parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (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 pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of TLDs to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular spell of time between one and ten yrs. They may have other prerequisites with respect to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting package where you have to include it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web site files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your website. You can have a domain name registered with a certain provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting firms provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer everything from one and the same website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each hosting provider has at least two name servers - ns1.just-hosts.com and ns2.just-hosts.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the opportunity to modify the name servers and point the domain name to one hosting supplier or another.

The Necessity for Stable website hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting corporation and is added to their servers, you will obtain several online services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be accessible when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail addresses such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate site, being accessible online and being able to use mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most essential things that you obtain with a web hosting account. If you host a business web page – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. Therefore you need a trustworthy web hosting provider that will supply a fast and stable hosting service.
