Cheap Hosting Services for Your Domains

There are 2 items you require in order to start a web site. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is fundamentally the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be situated, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two associated, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them to have an operational web portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it includes two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between one and ten yrs. They may involve additional requirements concerning the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the site files that you host in the account, in other words it will exhibit your site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain company and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosts offer both solutions and it is more convenient to administer everything from one web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each hosting company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.afrowebhost.com and ns2.www.afrowebhost.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name gives you the chance to alter the NS records and point the domain to one hosting distributor or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy website hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain different online services. The most important one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be accessible when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mails like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you host a personal or a business site, being available online and being allowed to create email accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you own a corporate site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. That's why you require a reliable web hosting distributor that will deliver a reliable and steady web hosting service.
