Affordably Priced Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are 2 things you require so as to have a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is principally the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the web page files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 similar, yet different solutions, and you require both of them so as to have a functioning web page.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick 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 comprises 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above 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 to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of TLDs to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular span of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may entail additional prerequisites with regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to host it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will show the files that you host in the account, in other words it will exhibit your website. You can have a domain registered with one registrar and get the hosting service from another, although lots of hosting service providers provide both services and it is more convenient to handle everything from the same web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting vendor has at least two nameservers - ns1.evostrix.eu and ns2.evostrix.eu, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name offers you the opportunity to alter the NS records and point the domain to one hosting distributor or another.

The Need of Trustworthy Website Hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting service provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain different online services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you host on the server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailboxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web page, being available online and being permitted to set up electronic mail accounts with your domain are the two most essential options that you get with a website hosting account. In case you host a corporate web page – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or clients. This is the reason why you need a reliable web hosting firm that will offer a dependable and steady website hosting service.
