Modestly Priced Hosting Solutions for Your TLDs
There are two items you need in order to establish a web page. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is inherently the hard disk space on a web server where the web page files will be placed, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet separate services, and you need both of them to have a working site.
What is a Domain?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is composed of 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given period of time between one and ten years. They may include more stipulations about the registrant.
Domain Hosting Solutions
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the website files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your web page. You can have a domain registered with one registrar and get the hosting service from another, although many web hosting distributors provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer everything from one single web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting firm has at least two nameservers - ns1.lifenethost.net and ns2.lifenethost.net, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name gives you the opportunity to modify the NS records and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.
The Necessity for Stable website hosting Services
As soon as the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting distributor and is added to their servers, you will get a number of web services. The most important one is that the web page files that you have on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up email address accounts like email@example.com and utilize webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate site, being accessible online and being allowed to use mail accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that you receive with a website hosting package. In case you administer a corporate web page – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. Therefore you demand a stable hosting service provider that will provide a dependable and steady web hosting service.
