Affordably Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are two features you demand so as to set up an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is essentially the disk storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 linked, yet separate services, and you need both of them in order to have a running web site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it contains 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between 1 and 10 years. They may have additional preconditions in regard to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the site files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting vendors provide both solutions and it is more time-saving 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 alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each hosting provider has at least two name servers - ns1.netupafrica.com and ns2.netupafrica.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain offers you the possibility to alter the name server records and point the domain name to one hosting vendor or another.

The Need of Trustworthy website hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting supplier and is added to their web servers, you will get several online services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you keep on the hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mailboxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you have a personal or a business site, being online and being allowed to use mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most pivotal things that you receive with a hosting account. In case you have a business web site – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or clients. This is the reason why you require a reliable hosting distributor that will furnish a dependable and stable web hosting solution.
