Half-Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names

There are 2 items you require in order to open a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is primarily the disk space on a web server where the website files will be situated, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are two linked, yet different services, and you need them both to have a running web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select 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 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain spell of time between one and ten years. They may entail other preconditions about the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the site files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a certain provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosting service providers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to handle everything from the same hosting CP tool. Either way, since 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 do that, you need to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting firm has at least 2 name servers - ns1.yeswebworks.com and ns2.yeswebworks.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain offers you the option to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one service provider or another.

The Demand for Reliable web hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting firm and is added to their hosting servers, you will get different online services. The most essential one is that the site files that you host on the web server will now be shown when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail boxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being allowed to create email box accounts with your domain are the two most fundamental things that come with a website hosting package. In case you administer a business online portal – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or customers. This is the reason why you require a stable web host that will deliver a dependable and steady hosting service.
