Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Domain Names

There are two things you require in order to start a site. The first one is a domain name that will open your website when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is principally the data storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two associated, yet different solutions, and you demand them both so as to have an operational web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it comprises two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may involve more prerequisites concerning the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to include it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will show the web content that you have in the account, in other words it will display your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a specific company and obtain the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting vendors offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one single web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting supplier has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.stephenikpenihosting.co.uk and ns2.www.stephenikpenihosting.co.uk, for example. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain gives you the option to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting distributor or another.

The Demand for Reliable web hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will get several services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you have on the server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up mail addresses such as 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-mailboxes with your domain name are the two most significant things that come with a website hosting plan. If you run a business website – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. That is the reason why you need a stable hosting company that will furnish a dependable and stable web hosting service.
