Cheap Hosting Plans for Your TLDs

There are 2 entities you need so as to open an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web site when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is principally the disk space on a server where the web page files will be located, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are two linked, yet different services, and you need them both to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may contain more prerequisites in relation to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the website files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your web site. You can have a domain name registered with one company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many hosting companies provide both services and it is more convenient to handle all services from the same website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each hosting corporation has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.cloud7.com.au and ns2.cloud7.com.au, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain offers you the possibility to modify the name server records and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.

The Demand for Dependable website hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting firm and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain a number of services. The most important one is that the website files that you host on the web server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create mailbox accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you host a personal or a business site, being available online and being able to use email boxes with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that you obtain with a web hosting package. If you host a corporate web page – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. Therefore you demand a dependable host that will furnish a reliable and stable web hosting service.
