Low-Price Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two items you need in order to host an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your online portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is fundamentally the storage space on a server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two connected, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them so as to have a running web portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of 2 components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain interval of time between one and 10 yrs. They may impose more stipulations concerning the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to include it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will show the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web page. You can have a domain name registered with one registrar and get the hosting service from another, although lots of companies offer both services and it is more time-saving to administer everything from one and the same web hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting account are separate 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 change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting vendor has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.alhidhab.com and ns2.www.alhidhab.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the opportunity to alter the name servers and point the domain to one hosting supplier or another.

The Necessity for Dependable website hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive different online services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you have on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create mail address accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate online portal, being available online and being able to create e-mails with your domain are the two most significant things that you obtain with a website hosting package. If you host a corporate website – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. That is why you require a trustworthy web host that will deliver a fast and steady hosting solution.
