Low-Priced Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are 2 things you need so as to run a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is basically the hard disk space on a web 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 two linked, yet different solutions, and you need them both so as to have an operational web site.
What is a Domain?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of TLDs to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular spell of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may involve other prerequisites in relation to the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the web content that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although lots of hosting providers offer both services and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from one and the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the hosting plan 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 need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each hosting company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.livhana.net and ns2.livhana.net, for instance. The hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name offers you the chance to modify the name servers and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.
The Necessity for Stable Hosting Services
The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting service provider and is added to their servers, you will receive several online services. The most vital one is that the site files that you accommodate on the server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailboxes like email@example.com and use webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you host a personal or a business web site, being available online and being allowed to use email addresses with your domain name are the two most important things that you get with a website hosting plan. In case you administer a business web site – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. For this reason you demand a dependable provider that will provide a reliable and stable web hosting solution.
