Reasonably Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two things you demand so as to kick off a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your online portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is basically the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet separate services, and you need both of them to have a functioning web page.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed 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 interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may impose more specifications regarding the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the web content that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a particular registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though numerous providers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from one CP interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each provider has at least two name servers - ns1.murrayhost.com and ns2.murrayhost.com, for instance. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain offers you the option to alter the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting service provider or another.

The Necessity for Trustworthy Web Hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting service provider and is added to their servers, you will get different web services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you have on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail box accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate website, being available online and being permitted to set up e-mailboxes with your domain are the two most cardinal options that you receive with a website hosting account. If you own a business site – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. For this reason you require a trustworthy web hosting service provider that will offer a reliable and steady hosting solution.
