Cut-Price Hosting Services for Your Domain Names

There are two items you need in order to set up a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your online portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is fundamentally the hard disk space on a web server where the web page files will be located, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 related, yet different services, and you need them both to have a running web site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between 1 and 10 years. They may include more requirements when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a hosting account where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will display the web content that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and get the hosting service from another, although many web hosting companies offer both services and it is more user-friendly to handle everything from the same web hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each hosting supplier has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.srbhost.net and ns2.srbhost.net, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name gives you the option to modify the name server records and point the domain name to one web hosting service provider or another.

The Necessity for Reliable Web Hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting vendor and is added to their hosting servers, you will get various online services. The most essential one is that the site files that you host on the server will now be accessible when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish email accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate web site, being accessible online and being able to use email box accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal things that you receive with a hosting plan. In case you run a business web site – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or customers. That is the reason why you demand a dependable hosting distributor that will offer a reliable and stable web hosting solution.
