Half-Priced Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 features you require in order to establish an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your online portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is fundamentally the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be situated, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are two linked, yet separate solutions, and you need them both so as to have a functioning online portal.
What is a Domain?
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is composed of 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a set number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between one and ten years. They may have other requirements concerning the registrant.
Domain Web Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to host it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the web content that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a certain company and receive the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosting companies provide both services and it is more time-saving to administer all services from a single web hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each hosting service provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.terabitcloud.com and ns2.terabitcloud.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain gives you the possibility to change the name servers and point the domain to one hosting company or another.
The Necessity for Dependable web hosting Services
Once the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting firm and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain a number of services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you have on the web server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mailboxes like email@example.com and utilize webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate online portal, being online and being able to set up e-mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most pivotal options that you obtain with a web hosting package. If you have a business online portal – it will single out your business before your visitors or clients. This is the reason why you demand a trustworthy host that will supply a fast and steady website hosting solution.
