Half-Priced Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two things you require in order to launch an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is fundamentally the hard disk space on a server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are two interconnected, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them so as to have an operational web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it consists of 2 parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between one and ten yrs. They may include additional stipulations in regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the web content that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web page. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting distributors offer both services and it is more time-saving to handle all services from one and the same web hosting CP user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.axcloudhost.com and ns2.axcloudhost.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain gives you the possibility to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting company or another.

The Need of Dependable website hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting supplier and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain a number of web services. The most vital one is that the website files that you host on the hosting server will now be accessible when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish email mailboxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate online portal, being online and being able to set up e-mail accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that you get with a website hosting package. In case you run a business web portal – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. Therefore you require a reliable hosting corporation that will provide a fast and steady web hosting solution.
