Affordably Priced Web Hosting Packages for Your TLDs

There are two things you require in order to open a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is essentially the disk storage space on a server where the web page files will be situated, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are two associated, yet different solutions, and you demand both of them to have a functioning website.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it comprises two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of TLDs to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given period of time between 1 and ten years. They may impose more requirements about the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting plan where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will open the web page files that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your web page. You can have a domain registered with one registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting vendors provide both services and it is more time-saving to manage everything from one and the same web hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.cirrusitsuk.net and ns2.cirrusitsuk.net, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the option to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one host or another.

The Necessity for Reliable Web Hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will receive several web services. The most crucial one is that the web site files that you keep on the server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail address accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a business web portal, being online and being enabled to use e-mail address accounts with your domain are the two most pivotal options that come with a website hosting account. In case you host a corporate site – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. That is why you demand a trustworthy provider that will supply a dependable and stable website hosting service.
