Low-Priced Hosting Services for Your TLDs

There are 2 things you need so as to host a web page. The first one is a domain name that will open your website when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is inherently the disk space on a server where the website files will be situated, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 connected, yet different solutions, and you demand both of them in order to have a working web site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is made of 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain span of time between one and 10 years. They may entail more requirements in regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a hosting plan where you have to include it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will display the web page files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your web page. You can have a domain registered with a certain registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosts provide both services and it is more time-saving to handle everything from one and the same web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.alphaserver.ga and ns2.alphaserver.ga, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name offers you the chance to modify the name server records and point the domain to one hosting company or another.

The Need of Stable web hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive several web services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish email address accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you run a personal or a business website, being available online and being allowed to use email mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that you obtain with a web hosting account. In case you have a business web portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or clients. Therefore you require a dependable hosting corporation that will supply a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
