Cheap Web Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are 2 things you need so as to run a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is inherently the storage space on a server where the web page files will be placed, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two similar, yet separate services, and you demand both of them in order to have an operational web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves two constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, 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 finite number of top-level domain names to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between one and 10 yrs. They may involve more stipulations regarding the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though many hosting firms offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle everything from the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each hosting supplier has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.az01.eu and ns2.www.az01.eu, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the chance to modify the NS records and point the domain to one hosting service provider or another.

The Necessity for Reliable web hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting service provider and is added to their servers, you will obtain different services. The most important one is that the web site files that you have on the hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailbox accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web site, being available online and being enabled to create emails with your domain are the two most important options that you obtain with a website hosting package. In case you own a corporate website – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. For that reason you demand a trustworthy host that will supply a reliable and stable website hosting solution.
