Low-Cost Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 things you need so as to own an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your website when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is fundamentally the data storage space on a hosting server where the site files will be located, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are two connected, yet separate services, and you require them both so as to have a functioning site.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 30 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it contains two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a certain number of TLDs to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular period of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may contain other preconditions with respect to the registrant.
Domain Hosting Services
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a certain provider and get the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting corporations provide both services and it is more user-friendly to handle everything from one and the same hosting CP tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each web host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.smoothwebhosting.com and ns2.smoothwebhosting.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the possibility to modify the name servers and point the domain name to one host or another.
The Necessity for Reliable website hosting Solutions
The moment the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting corporation and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain several web services. The most important one is that the website files that you host on the web server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mail accounts like firstname.lastname@example.org and utilize webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a business site, being accessible online and being allowed to create e-mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most essential options that you obtain with a website hosting account. If you have a business website – it will single out your business before your visitors or clients. This is the reason why you require a reliable company that will furnish a fast and steady hosting solution.
