Affordably Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your TLDs

There are two items you need in order to set up a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is primarily the storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be located, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are two interconnected, yet different services, and you need both of them to have a functioning web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises 2 constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed stretch of time between one and 10 yrs. They may entail additional stipulations in regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to host it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web content that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your website. You can have a domain registered with one registrar and get the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting vendors provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle all services from the same web hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting service provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.www.vastgig.net and ns2.www.vastgig.net, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the possibility to modify the name server records and point the domain name to one provider or another.

The Demand for Stable web hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting company and is added to their web servers, you will get a number of web services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you have on the web server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mailbox accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being permitted to create mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most significant options that come with a website hosting plan. In case you run a business online portal – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. For that reason you demand a reliable web hosting service provider that will deliver a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
