Half-Priced Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two features you need in order to have a website. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is principally the storage space on a web server where the site files will be placed, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting account are two associated, yet different solutions, and you need both of them to have an operational web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between one and 10 years. They may contain other requirements in regard to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the web content that you host in the account, in other words it will display your web site. You can have a domain name registered with one provider and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of companies provide both solutions and it is more convenient to handle everything from the same web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain 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 perform that, you need to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.manetd.com and ns2.manetd.com, for example. The hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the chance to change the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting supplier or another.

The Need of Trustworthy Web Hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will obtain several online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you accommodate on the web server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish electronic mails such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a business online portal, being accessible online and being allowed to create email addresses with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that you receive with a website hosting account. In case you run a business site – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. This is why you require a stable company that will supply a fast and steady website hosting solution.
