Half-Priced Hosting Packages for Your TLDs

There are two things you require in order to own a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your web site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is primarily the disk space on a web hosting server where the web page files will be located, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are two similar, yet different services, and you demand both of them in order to have a working web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it consists of 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of TLDs to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed span of time between one and ten yrs. They may involve more specifications when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the web content that you host in the account, in other words it will display your website. You can have a domain registered with one provider and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosting service providers provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from the same website hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each web hosting service provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.hostsik.tk and ns2.hostsik.tk, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name offers you the opportunity to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one web host or another.

The Need of Dependable web hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you have on the web server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish email boxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you own a personal or a business website, being accessible online and being able to use mail addresses with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that come with a website hosting package. If you own a corporate website – it will identify your business before your website visitors or customers. Therefore you need a trustworthy web hosting supplier that will deliver a reliable and stable website hosting service.
