Cut-Price Hosting Solutions for Your Domain Names

There are 2 items you demand so as to launch a web page. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is essentially the storage space on a web server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 interconnected, yet separate services, and you require them both so as to have a running site.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it consists of two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of TLDs to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between one and ten yrs. They may involve more specifications in relation to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting plan where you have to host it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the files that you have in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a particular registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting companies provide both solutions and it is more convenient to manage all services from the same web hosting CP user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each hosting company has at least 2 name servers - ns1.iclick2.com and ns2.iclick2.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain gives you the option to change the name server records and point the domain to one hosting vendor or another.

The Need of Dependable web hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get different services. The most important one is that the site files that you accommodate on the server will now be shown when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish email accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate online portal, being accessible online and being allowed to set up mail accounts with your domain are the two most significant options that you receive with a hosting account. In case you own a business online portal – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. For that reason you require a dependable web hosting provider that will offer a reliable and steady website hosting service.
