Affordably Priced Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two things you need in order to launch an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your online portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a hosting plan, which is inherently the storage space on a web server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 similar, yet different solutions, and you need both of them in order to have a running online portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 70 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is made of 2 constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of top-level domain names to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may include more preconditions with respect to the registrant.
Domain Name Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the website files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with one provider and obtain the hosting service from another, although many providers provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from a single web hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each hosting supplier has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.asterhost.com and ns2.www.asterhost.com, for instance. The CP that you have for your domain gives you the possibility to change the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting corporation or another.
The Necessity for Stable Website Hosting Services
The moment the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting company and is added to their hosting servers, you will get several services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you host on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailboxes such as firstname.lastname@example.org and use webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a business web site, being available online and being enabled to create e-mailbox accounts with your domain are the two most pivotal options that you receive with a website hosting plan. In case you manage a corporate website – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. Therefore you require a reliable web hosting distributor that will supply a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
