Affordable Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 items you require in order to run a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is basically the data storage space on a web server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are two associated, yet separate services, and you need them both in order to have a working online portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it comprises 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, 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 is available for registration, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given period of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may contain more prerequisites with respect to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the website files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a given company and obtain the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting vendors provide both services and it is more convenient to manage all services from a single website hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each hosting service provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.sichern.org and ns2.sichern.org, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the opportunity to change the nameservers and point the domain to one web hosting vendor or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy Hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting supplier and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive various online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you host on the server will now be available online when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate website, being accessible online and being enabled to set up e-mailbox accounts with your domain are the two most significant things that you receive with a web hosting package. In case you administer a corporate site – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. For that reason you require a stable hosting service provider that will provide a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
