Reasonably Priced Hosting Services for Your Domain Names
There are 2 entities you require so as to own a web page. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is primarily the storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be located, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet different services, and you demand both of them to have a functioning site.
What is a Domain?
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it contains two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set number of top-level domain names to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular period of time between one and ten years. They may involve additional specifications when it comes to the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions
As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to include it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will show the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web page. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting suppliers offer both solutions and it is more convenient to handle everything from one and the same website hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each web host has at least two nameservers - ns1.alburyhost.com and ns2.alburyhost.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the option to change the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting firm or another.
The Necessity for Reliable web hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting service provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain several web services. The most important one is that the site files that you host on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create email boxes like email@example.com and utilize webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a business web page, being accessible online and being able to create emails with your domain name are the two most important things that you receive with a web hosting plan. If you own a business web site – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. That's why you require a stable web host that will offer a reliable and steady web hosting service.
