Half-Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are 2 features you require so as to run an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your web page when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a hosting plan, which is principally the disk space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be located, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two related, yet different solutions, and you demand them both in order to have an operational website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it includes 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may impose additional requirements concerning the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will show the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your site. You can have a domain registered with a particular registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting service providers provide both services and it is more convenient to manage all services from a single web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each hosting supplier has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.99web.host and ns2.www.99web.host, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the possibility to modify the NS records and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.

The Necessity for Stable website hosting Solutions

Once the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting distributor and is added to their web servers, you will receive different web services. The most important one is that the web page files that you keep on the server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish email addresses like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a business web 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 web hosting account. If you run a business web portal – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. This is the reason why you demand a reliable hosting supplier that will offer a fast and stable hosting service.
