Budget Hosting Services for Your Domain Names

There are two entities you require in order to establish a website. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a hosting package, which is fundamentally the data storage space on a server where the site files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are two similar, yet different solutions, and you demand them both to have a running web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves two constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a certain number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular interval of time between one and 10 years. They may entail more prerequisites in relation to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to host it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a specific company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting vendors offer both services and it is more convenient to handle everything from a single CP user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name 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 so-called name server records. Each web host has at least 2 name servers - ns1.radspace.com and ns2.radspace.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name offers you the chance to alter the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting vendor or another.

The Demand for Reliable website hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most important one is that the web page files that you host on the web server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail box accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate web site, being online and being allowed to create email address accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that you obtain with a web hosting package. If you administer a business web site – it will identify your business before your website visitors or customers. For this reason you require a trustworthy web hosting provider that will provide a dependable and steady hosting solution.
