Low-Price Hosting Solutions for Your Domain Names

There are 2 things you demand in order to host a web site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is fundamentally the hard disk space on a web hosting server where the website files will be located, plus several more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two interconnected, yet different services, and you require both of them so as to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between one and ten yrs. They may entail additional preconditions when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting account where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web site files that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a certain provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting companies offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from one CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each web hosting company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.helioshost.com and ns2.www.helioshost.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the possibility to modify the name servers and point the domain name to one hosting supplier or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy web hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most vital one is that the site files that you have on the server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mail addresses such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate website, being available online and being enabled to use mails with your domain are the two most important options that you get with a web hosting account. In case you have a business web site – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or clients. For this reason you need a trustworthy web host that will offer a dependable and steady web hosting service.
