Cheap Web Hosting Services for Your TLDs

There are 2 things you require in order to host a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is fundamentally the disk space on a web hosting server where the site files will be placed, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are two interconnected, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both in order to have an operational site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it contains two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a set number of TLDs to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular spell of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may contain more requirements regarding the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting plan where you have to add it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with one company and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosting service providers provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer all services from the same web hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each hosting provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.tierrahost.com and ns2.tierrahost.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name gives you the chance to alter the NS records and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.

The Necessity for Dependable website hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting corporation and is added to their hosting servers, you will get a number of services. The most vital one is that the website files that you have on the web server will now be shown when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish mail addresses like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate site, being accessible online and being able to create electronic mail accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that you receive with a website hosting account. If you own a business online portal – it will identify your business before your visitors or customers. For that reason you require a dependable hosting provider that will deliver a reliable and steady website hosting solution.
