Cheap Hosting Packages for Your Domains

There are two things you require in order to open a web site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is fundamentally the storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be situated, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 linked, yet separate solutions, and you require them both to have a working web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of 2 constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to select 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 contain additional stipulations when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will open the website files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your website. You can have a domain name registered with a certain provider and get the hosting service from another, although many web hosting vendors offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one web hosting CP tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each hosting corporation has at least two name servers - ns1.webhosting.maxima.com.ng and ns2.webhosting.maxima.com.ng, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name offers you the chance to modify the name servers and point the domain to one hosting distributor or another.

The Demand for Dependable Web Hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their web servers, you will get a number of online services. The most important one is that the site files that you accommodate on the server will now be shown when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up mails like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate website, being online and being enabled to create emails with your domain are the two most cardinal options that you get with a web hosting package. In case you host a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or clients. This is the reason why you demand a trustworthy web hosting service provider that will offer a fast and steady website hosting service.
