Low-Priced Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names

There are 2 entities you require so as to have a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your online portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a hosting plan, which is inherently the disk storage space on a web server where the web page files will be located, plus several more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both to have a functioning web page.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it involves 2 constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given span of time between 1 and 10 years. They may include additional preconditions in regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the content that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web page. You can have a domain registered with one registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although numerous hosts provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from one single web hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.dwellinghost.net and ns2.dwellinghost.net, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name offers you the chance to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one company or another.

The Need of Dependable web hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting company and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive various services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you host on the web server will now be available online when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mails like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate site, being accessible online and being enabled to create email addresses with your domain name are the two most pivotal options that you receive with a web hosting account. If you host a business site – it will identify your business before your website visitors or customers. For this reason you need a dependable web hosting corporation that will deliver a dependable and stable web hosting service.
