Reasonably Priced Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two features you require in order to own a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is basically the storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 related, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them in order to have a running web site.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination 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 is composed of 2 entities – a Top-Level Domain (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 choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, 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 given spell of time between one and 10 years. They may involve additional stipulations with respect to the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a hosting plan where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the web site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your online portal. You can have a domain registered with a particular company and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting companies offer both services and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from one web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each web hosting firm has at least 2 name servers - ns1.northvancouverwebhosting.com and ns2.northvancouverwebhosting.com, for instance. The hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the opportunity to alter the name servers and point the domain to one hosting supplier or another.
The Demand for Trustworthy web hosting Solutions
Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will get several web services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mailbox accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a business web site, being available online and being enabled to set up e-mailboxes with your domain are the two most pivotal options that come with a website hosting plan. In case you run a corporate site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. That is the reason why you demand a trustworthy web hosting firm that will deliver a reliable and stable web hosting service.
