Cheap Web Hosting Services for Your Domain Names

There are 2 things you need in order to establish a website. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is fundamentally the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 related, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them to have a running web site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it includes two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular span of time between 1 and 10 years. They may contain other preconditions in regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to host it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your web portal. You can have a domain registered with one provider and get the hosting service from another, although many web hosting distributors provide both services and it is more time-saving to manage everything from one single CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website 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 have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting supplier has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.pickmweb.com and ns2.pickmweb.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the possibility to change the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting supplier or another.

The Necessity for Reliable Web Hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting supplier and is added to their web servers, you will obtain different online services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you keep on the server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mail accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a business web page, being online and being able to create e-mail accounts with your domain are the two most fundamental options that come with a hosting plan. If you run a business web page – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. For that reason you demand a stable web hosting firm that will deliver a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
