Budget Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are 2 features you demand in order to set up a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a hosting package, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a web server where the site files will be situated, plus several more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 connected, yet separate services, and you need them both in order to have a functioning site.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it involves two components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken 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 spell of time between 1 and 10 years. They may include other stipulations regarding the registrant.

Domain Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a hosting account where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your web site. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosting vendors provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from a single web hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each web host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.cpwebhosting.net and ns2.cpwebhosting.net, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name offers you the option to modify the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting supplier or another.

The Need of Stable Website Hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will receive several online services. The most important one is that the web site files that you host on the web hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mailboxes like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being permitted to use email address accounts with your domain name are the two most essential things that you get with a website hosting plan. If you host a business online portal – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. That is the reason why you require a stable web hosting provider that will furnish a reliable and steady hosting service.
