Inexpensive Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two things you demand in order to own a website. The first one is a domain name that will show your web site when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is primarily the storage space on a server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are two similar, yet different solutions, and you require them both in order to have an operational web page.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it is composed of 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite 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 interval of time between one and ten years. They may have more prerequisites concerning the registrant.

Domain Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a hosting account where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will display the web site files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your site. You can have a domain registered with a particular company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting companies provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from the same hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each hosting service provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.www.spvhost.com and ns2.www.spvhost.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name offers you the possibility to change the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting supplier or another.

The Need of Reliable Web Hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting service provider and is added to their web servers, you will receive several services. The most important one is that the site files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail address accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate web page, being accessible online and being able to set up e-mails with your domain name are the two most important things that you get with a website hosting plan. If you host a corporate site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. For that reason you need a trustworthy hosting service provider that will offer a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
