Modestly Priced Hosting Solutions for Your TLDs
There are 2 features you need so as to open a web site. 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 plan, which is primarily the disk storage space on a server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 similar, yet different solutions, and you require both of them in order to have a running web portal.
What is a Domain?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it comprises 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular span of time between one and ten yrs. They may involve other prerequisites with respect to the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a hosting package where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the website files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your web page. You can have a domain registered with a particular company and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosting corporations provide both services and it is more convenient to manage everything from one and the same website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each company has at least two nameservers - ns1.atkotechhosting.com and ns2.atkotechhosting.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name gives you the opportunity to change the NS records and point the domain to one hosting service provider or another.
The Demand for Dependable Web Hosting Services
The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most vital one is that the website files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up email mailboxes like firstname.lastname@example.org and use webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you run a personal or a business online portal, being online and being able to create email mailboxes with your domain are the two most pivotal options that you obtain with a web hosting package. If you own a corporate web page – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. That is why you demand a trustworthy web hosting firm that will offer a fast and stable hosting service.
