Affordably Priced Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two things you need in order to run a web page. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is basically the storage space on a hosting server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet separate services, and you require them both to have a working web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it comprises 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain spell of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may involve other specifications in regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a particular company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosts offer both services and it is more time-saving to administer everything from the same hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each hosting vendor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.paazy.biz and ns2.paazy.biz, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name gives you the option to alter the name servers and point the domain to one provider or another.

The Necessity for Stable Hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting supplier and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive various web services. The most essential one is that the site files that you keep on the web server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish email box accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a business web site, being available online and being enabled to use email mailbox accounts with your domain are the two most important options that you receive with a hosting account. In case you manage a business web page – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. This is why you need a dependable hosting distributor that will furnish a reliable and steady website hosting service.
