Inexpensive Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two things you require in order to open a website. The first one is a domain name that will show your website when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is primarily the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 connected, yet different services, and you demand them both in order to have a functioning web page.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it consists of two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between one and 10 yrs. They may involve other preconditions with respect to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to host it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the web page files that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your online portal. You can have a domain registered with one company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosting suppliers offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from the same CP interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name servers. Each hosting vendor has at least two name servers - ns1.woncloud.com and ns2.woncloud.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain name gives you the opportunity to modify the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting firm or another.

The Demand for Dependable Web Hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting company and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive several online services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you host on the web hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mailbox accounts like [email protected] and utilize webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate site, being available online and being able to set up electronic mails with your domain name are the two most essential things that you get with a website hosting account. If you host a business web portal – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. For this reason you need a stable hosting corporation that will offer a fast and stable hosting service.
