Low-Priced Hosting Services for Your Domain Names

There are 2 entities you require so as to kick off a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is primarily the disk space on a hosting server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet different services, and you need both of them so as to have a working website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it is made of 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain stretch of time between one and ten yrs. They may entail other preconditions when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a specific provider and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosting corporations offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer all services from one and the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each web hosting firm has at least two nameservers - ns1.digitalsteer.com and ns2.digitalsteer.com, for example. The CP that you utilize for your domain name gives you the option to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one host or another.

The Need of Dependable website hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting service provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will get several online services. The most vital one is that the website files that you have on the hosting server will now be accessible when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish electronic mails such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you run a personal or a business site, being online and being allowed to create electronic mailboxes with your domain are the two most important options that you receive with a web hosting package. If you have a business web page – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or customers. Therefore you demand a trustworthy hosting corporation that will provide a dependable and stable web hosting service.
