Low-Cost Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names

There are two entities you require so as to own a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is primarily the storage space on a web server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are two related, yet different solutions, and you need them both so as to have a functioning online portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters 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 top-level domain name. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular span of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may include more specifications with regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to include it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will show the files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your site. You can have a domain registered with a specific registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though numerous companies provide both solutions and it is more convenient to manage everything from one single web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting plan 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 change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting distributor has at least two nameservers - ns1.idatarack.com and ns2.idatarack.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain offers you the chance to alter the nameservers and point the domain name to one hosting service provider or another.

The Demand for Stable website hosting Solutions

Once the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get a number of online services. The most vital one is that the website files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create email mailbox accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a business web site, being online and being allowed to use email address accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that you get with a hosting account. If you administer a business web page – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or customers. Therefore you require a stable hosting firm that will supply a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
