Cut-Rate Hosting Services for Your Domains

There are 2 items you need so as to establish a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is principally the disk storage space on a web server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two linked, yet separate services, and you require them both so as to have a working website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is composed of 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a finite number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between 1 and 10 years. They may include other stipulations in regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the web content that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a specific registrar and get the hosting service from another, although many web hosting corporations offer both solutions and it is more convenient to handle everything from one hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each web host has at least 2 name servers - ns1.cynet-internet.com and ns2.cynet-internet.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain name offers you the option to alter the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting supplier or another.

The Necessity for Reliable Web Hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will receive various services. The most vital one is that the site files that you have on the server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a business website, being available online and being able to create e-mail address accounts with your domain are the two most fundamental options that you get with a web hosting account. In case you administer a corporate site – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or customers. For this reason you require a stable service provider that will supply a fast and steady web hosting solution.
