Half-Priced Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 things you need in order to run a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a hosting plan, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be located, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet different services, and you need them both in order to have a functioning web page.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular span of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may contain more stipulations concerning the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to add it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the website files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your site. You can have a domain registered with a certain registrar and get the hosting service from another, although lots of hosting firms provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer all services from one single web hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each hosting service provider has at least two name servers - ns1.fajrihosting.com and ns2.fajrihosting.com, for instance. The CP that you have for your domain name offers you the chance to alter the name servers and point the domain name to one provider or another.

The Demand for Dependable website hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will receive different online services. The most important one is that the web site files that you host on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create email addresses such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you host a personal or a business web site, being accessible online and being permitted to set up e-mailboxes with your domain name are the two most significant things that you receive with a web hosting plan. If you own a business web portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or clients. Therefore you demand a dependable web hosting company that will deliver a fast and steady website hosting solution.
