Low-Price Web Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names

There are 2 features you require in order to own a web page. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a web server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet separate services, and you require both of them so as to have a functioning website.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it contains 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between one and 10 yrs. They may entail more specifications when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to host it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the site files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your website. You can have a domain registered with a particular company and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting corporations offer both services and it is more convenient to manage all services from one single hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting account 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 have to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each host has at least 2 name servers - ns1.xgen-hosting.com and ns2.xgen-hosting.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name offers you the possibility to alter the NS records and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.

The Demand for Reliable web hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting company and is added to their servers, you will obtain different online services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up mailboxes like name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate site, being available online and being enabled to create email addresses with your domain name are the two most important things that you get with a web hosting plan. If you administer a business website – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. That is the reason why you demand a stable provider that will furnish a dependable and stable web hosting service.
