Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Domains

There are 2 entities you demand so as to run a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the site files will be placed, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 linked, yet different services, and you need both of them so as to have an operational site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it is made of 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (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 name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain stretch of time between one and 10 years. They may impose other specifications about the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname 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 web browser, it will open the files that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your web page. You can have a domain registered with one provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting firms provide both services and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from the same hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each hosting provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.lifenethost.net and ns2.lifenethost.net, for instance. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain name gives you the opportunity to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting service provider or another.

The Necessity for Reliable Web Hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting company and is added to their web servers, you will obtain various online services. The most crucial one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the web server will now be available online when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up mails such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate site, being available online and being enabled to set up electronic mail accounts with your domain are the two most significant options that you receive with a web hosting account. If you own a business online portal – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. Therefore you need a dependable web hosting firm that will offer a reliable and stable web hosting service.
