Low-Priced Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 features you demand in order to host a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is inherently the disk space on a server where the web page files will be located, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 connected, yet different services, and you demand both of them to have a working web portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it comprises two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a set number of top-level domain names to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between 1 and ten years. They may entail additional requirements about the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will show the web site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your web site. You can have a domain registered with a certain registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though numerous service providers offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage everything from a single hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each hosting distributor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.hostprotects.com and ns2.hostprotects.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain name offers you the opportunity to alter the name server records and point the domain name to one hosting service provider or another.

The Demand for Dependable Web Hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will obtain different services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you host on the server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create email address accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a business web site, being online and being allowed to use email address accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that you get with a hosting package. If you run a corporate site – it will identify your business before your visitors or customers. This is the reason why you demand a trustworthy web hosting corporation that will provide a dependable and stable website hosting service.
