Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your TLDs

There are two entities you require so as to launch a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a server where the web site files will be located, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 connected, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them so as to have an operational web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it involves 2 entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the SLD of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given span of time between 1 and ten years. They may have additional prerequisites in regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will display the site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web site. You can have a domain name registered with one company and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosting companies offer both services and it is more convenient to administer everything from one and the same website hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the 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 NS records. Each hosting vendor has at least 2 name servers - ns1.opnux.com and ns2.opnux.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain name offers you the opportunity to alter the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting provider or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy website hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting supplier and is added to their hosting servers, you will get a number of services. The most vital one is that the site files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mail address accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you manage a personal or a business online portal, being online and being allowed to set up e-mailbox accounts with your domain are the two most important options that you receive with a web hosting package. If you manage a business website – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. For that reason you require a dependable web hosting company that will furnish a dependable and steady website hosting solution.
