Inexpensive Hosting Services for Your Domain Names

There are 2 things you demand so as to set up a web page. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is inherently the storage space on a server where the web page files will be situated, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are two connected, yet separate solutions, and you need them both to have a running web portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it includes 2 constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a certain number of TLDs to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given span of time between one and ten years. They may have other stipulations concerning the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting package where you have to include it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the web content that you host in the account, in other words it will exhibit your site. You can have a domain name registered with a given provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting providers provide both services and it is more time-saving to manage all services from a single website hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each hosting corporation has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.pickmweb.com and ns2.pickmweb.com, for example. The Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the chance to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting corporation or another.

The Necessity for Trustworthy web hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will receive different services. The most essential one is that the website files that you have on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mail address accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being able to set up e-mail box accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that you get with a website hosting account. If you host a corporate site – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. Therefore you need a dependable hosting corporation that will provide a fast and steady web hosting solution.
