Half-Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names

There are 2 items you require so as to start a web page. The first one is a domain name that will open your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is primarily the storage space on a web server where the web site files will be placed, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet separate services, and you require them both so as to have a running online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it involves 2 constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (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 choose the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed stretch of time between one and 10 yrs. They may include more stipulations with respect to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to include it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the content that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your website. You can have a domain registered with a particular company and get the hosting service from another, even though many service providers offer both services and it is more convenient to handle everything from a single website hosting CP user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web 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 have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each host has at least two nameservers - ns1.suhost.org and ns2.suhost.org, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name offers you the possibility to modify the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting corporation or another.

The Need of Trustworthy web hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting company and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive a number of services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you keep on the web server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create mails such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate site, being online and being allowed to create e-mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that you obtain with a web hosting account. In case you have a business web portal – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or customers. Therefore you need a stable web hosting firm that will offer a fast and steady web hosting service.
