Low-Price Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains

There are 2 items you need so as to open a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is fundamentally the hard disk space on a server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet separate services, and you require both of them in order to have a functioning site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it contains 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed 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 particular span of time between 1 and 10 years. They may include additional requirements in relation to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to include it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your website. You can have a domain registered with a given company and obtain the hosting service from another, although many web hosting distributors offer both services and it is more user-friendly to handle everything from one web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.hostingptc.com and ns2.hostingptc.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name gives you the possibility to change the name server records and point the domain to one web host or another.

The Need of Trustworthy website hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will get various web services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you have on the web hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailboxes like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web portal, being available online and being enabled to use e-mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most important things that you get with a website hosting plan. If you own a corporate website – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or customers. Therefore you need a dependable hosting supplier that will supply a fast and steady web hosting solution.
