Discounted Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains

There are 2 entities you need in order to start a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is fundamentally the hard disk storage space on a web server where the website files will be located, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 connected, yet different solutions, and you need them both so as to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it includes two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a set number of TLDs to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between 1 and ten years. They may entail more stipulations about the registrant.

Domain Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with one company and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosting firms provide both services and it is more time-saving to manage all services from one single web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each hosting vendor has at least two nameservers - ns1.cloudinfrastructuresolutions.co.uk and ns2.cloudinfrastructuresolutions.co.uk, for example. The CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the option to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting firm or another.

The Need of Reliable web hosting Solutions

The moment the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting distributor and is added to their servers, you will receive various web services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you host on the web server will now be accessible when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create email addresses like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a business site, being available online and being able to set up mail address accounts with your domain are the two most pivotal things that come with a web hosting package. If you host a corporate site – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or clients. That's why you demand a dependable service provider that will offer a fast and stable website hosting solution.
