Reasonably Priced Web Hosting Services for Your Domain Names

There are 2 entities you demand in order to host a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your web site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is essentially the disk space on a hosting server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 associated, yet different services, and you require both of them in order to have a working website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is made of two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set number of TLDs to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular span of time between one and 10 yrs. They may entail other requirements regarding the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a specific provider and get the hosting service from another, even though many hosting providers provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle everything from one single CP tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each service provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.wighthosting.info and ns2.wighthosting.info, for example. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain gives you the chance to modify the NS records and point the domain to one hosting company or another.

The Demand for Dependable Web Hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting supplier and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive several web services. The most crucial one is that the web site files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create mails such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a business web page, being online and being enabled to use mailboxes with your domain name are the two most significant options that you get with a web hosting package. If you run a corporate web site – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or customers. Therefore you require a trustworthy hosting provider that will offer a dependable and stable web hosting service.
