Discounted Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two features you need in order to establish a web page. The first one is a domain name that will open your web page when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is basically the disk storage space on a server where the web page files will be situated, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 interconnected, yet different solutions, and you need both of them in order to have a working website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of 2 constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between one and ten years. They may impose more requirements in regard to the registrant.

Domain Web 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 host it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your website. You can have a domain name registered with one provider and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosting corporations provide both services and it is more time-saving to administer all services from one web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each web hosting provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.gobobby.uk and ns2.gobobby.uk, for example. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name gives you the option to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one company or another.

The Necessity for Dependable Hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting provider and is added to their servers, you will receive a number of online services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you have on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you have a personal or a business web site, being available online and being allowed to set up electronic mails with your domain name are the two most pivotal things that you obtain with a website hosting package. In case you administer a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your website visitors or clients. That is the reason why you require a trustworthy hosting corporation that will offer a fast and stable web hosting service.
