Budget Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 things you require so as to host an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is basically the disk space on a hosting server where the site files will be situated, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 linked, yet separate solutions, and you require both of them in order to have an operational site.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it includes two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between one and 10 yrs. They may entail other requirements regarding the registrant.
Domain Name Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will exhibit the web content that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your site. You can have a domain name registered with one provider and receive the hosting service from another, although many hosts offer both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from the same web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting company has at least 2 name servers - ns1.mujicahosting.com and ns2.mujicahosting.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the opportunity to alter the name server records and point the domain name to one web hosting supplier or another.
The Necessity for Reliable Hosting Services
Once the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting company and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive various online services. The most important one is that the site files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be accessible when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailboxes such as email@example.com and avail of webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate site, being online and being able to set up email mailbox accounts with your domain are the two most fundamental things that you receive with a website hosting plan. In case you manage a corporate web page – it will identify your business before your visitors or clients. For this reason you demand a stable web hosting company that will offer a dependable and stable website hosting service.
