Modestly Priced Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are 2 features you need so as to start a web site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your site when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a hosting package, which is fundamentally the hard disk space on a server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet different solutions, and you need both of them so as to have a running web site.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain 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 above illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed span of time between one and 10 years. They may contain other prerequisites in regard to the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Services
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting package where you have to include it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the website files that you host in the account, in other words it will exhibit your site. You can have a domain name registered with one company and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous companies offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer everything from one hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name servers. Each web host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.agrawebhosting.com and ns2.www.agrawebhosting.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain offers you the possibility to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting provider or another.
The Need of Dependable Web Hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting distributor and is added to their servers, you will receive various online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you have on the server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up mail address accounts like email@example.com and utilize webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate web page, being available online and being able to use mails with your domain are the two most important options that you receive with a web hosting plan. If you have a corporate web page – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. For that reason you demand a trustworthy host that will furnish a reliable and stable website hosting solution.
