Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names

There are 2 things you demand so as to host an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your online portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is inherently the hard disk space on a hosting server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are two connected, yet different solutions, and you require them both so as to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it involves 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (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 choose the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between 1 and ten years. They may entail more specifications about the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web page. You can have a domain registered with a particular provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting companies provide both services and it is more convenient to handle all services from one and the same CP interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each web host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.maddogwebhosting.com and ns2.maddogwebhosting.com, for instance. The CP that you have for your domain name offers you the option to alter the name servers and point the domain to one hosting provider or another.

The Need of Dependable website hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive various services. The most essential one is that the website files that you have on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up electronic mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a business website, being online and being permitted to create email accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that you receive with a website hosting account. In case you own a business web site – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. This is why you need a dependable company that will deliver a dependable and steady web hosting service.
