Cheap Hosting Services for Your Domain Names

There are two things you require so as to open a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is fundamentally the hard disk space on a hosting server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 associated, yet different services, and you need both of them so as to have an operational web 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 site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it is made of 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular period of time between one and 10 years. They may contain more preconditions about the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to include it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the site files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosting distributors provide both services and it is more time-saving to handle all services from a single website hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each hosting company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.jb1hosting.com and ns2.www.jb1hosting.com, for instance. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain offers you the possibility to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting company or another.

The Need of Dependable website hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting service provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will get a number of online services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you have on the web server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish email address accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you have a personal or a business site, being available online and being able to set up emails with your domain name are the two most important things that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you host a business online portal – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. This is why you need a stable hosting service provider that will supply a dependable and stable hosting service.
