Moderately Priced Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains

There are 2 things you need so as to have a website. The first one is a domain name that will show your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a web server where the web page files will be located, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 associated, yet different services, and you need both of them to have a running online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves 2 parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain span of time between 1 and ten years. They may contain additional stipulations regarding the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the website files that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a given company and get the hosting service from another, although many web hosting providers provide both services and it is more time-saving to manage everything from one website hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting supplier has at least 2 name servers - ns1.omegahoster.com and ns2.omegahoster.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain gives you the chance to change the nameservers and point the domain name to one host or another.

The Demand for Stable Hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting corporation and is added to their servers, you will receive various services. The most important one is that the site files that you host on the server will now be available online when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up email mailboxes like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate web page, being accessible online and being able to use e-mail boxes with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that you receive with a web hosting plan. If you have a business web site – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. For that reason you need a reliable company that will furnish a reliable and stable hosting service.
