Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 features you need so as to start a web page. 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 website hosting account, which is essentially the disk space on a web server where the web page files will be situated, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two associated, yet separate solutions, and you require both of them so as to have a functioning web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it contains 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a finite number of TLDs to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may include other specifications in regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will show the web content that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although lots of hosts offer both services and it is more convenient to administer all services from one single web hosting CP GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each company has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.appdome.net.au and ns2.www.appdome.net.au, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain name gives you the option to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting company or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy website hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting company and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create electronic mails like name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate site, being available online and being able to create mail accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal options that you get with a hosting package. If you have a business web site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. Therefore you need a reliable web hosting provider that will provide a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
