Modestly Priced Web Hosting Packages for Your Domains

There are two entities you require in order to host a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is basically the data storage space on a server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are two associated, yet different services, and you require both of them to have a running web page.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it involves 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set 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 particular span of time between one and 10 yrs. They may entail other requirements regarding the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the web content that you host in the account, in other words it will exhibit your website. You can have a domain name registered with a particular provider and get the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting distributors provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer everything from the same website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.blazeitc.com and ns2.blazeitc.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the option to change the nameservers and point the domain to one company or another.

The Necessity for Stable website hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting service provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive several online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you host on the web server will now be shown when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish mail address accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you host a personal or a business site, being accessible online and being able to set up mail address accounts with your domain are the two most significant options that you get with a website hosting plan. If you own a business website – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. For that reason you need a trustworthy web hosting provider that will offer a fast and steady web hosting service.
