Inexpensive Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two things you require in order to open a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your online portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is inherently the data storage space on a server where the website files will be placed, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are two connected, yet separate services, and you need them both to have a working web page.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is composed of two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain stretch of time between one and 10 years. They may impose other specifications in relation to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting package where you have to host it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your web page. You can have a domain registered with a particular provider and get the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosting distributors offer both services and it is more time-saving to administer all services from a single website hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting service provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.sopdapcloud.com and ns2.sopdapcloud.com, for example. The CP that you have for your domain name offers you the possibility to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting service provider or another.

The Demand for Dependable web hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their web servers, you will obtain a number of services. The most essential one is that the website files that you have on the server will now be accessible when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up mailbox accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate online portal, being available online and being able to use e-mail addresses with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that you get with a web hosting package. In case you have a corporate web portal – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. That is the reason why you demand a dependable web hosting vendor that will supply a dependable and steady website hosting service.
