Affordable Hosting Packages for Your Domains

There are two things you need so as to launch a website. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web page when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is fundamentally the hard disk space on a hosting server where the site files will be situated, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are two interconnected, yet different solutions, and you need them both so as to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it comprises two constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, 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 span of time between one and ten yrs. They may contain more prerequisites with regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to host it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the web site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your web portal. You can have a domain registered with one company and obtain the hosting service from another, although lots of service providers provide both solutions and it is more convenient to handle everything from the same website hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each hosting firm has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.bluedomainhosting.com and ns2.bluedomainhosting.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the chance to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting firm or another.

The Need of Reliable Hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting provider and is added to their servers, you will get a number of services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you host on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create mails like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a business site, being available online and being permitted to create email address accounts with your domain are the two most essential things that you obtain with a web hosting package. In case you own a corporate site – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. This is why you demand a reliable hosting provider that will deliver a fast and stable web hosting solution.
