Low-Priced Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names

There are two items you need in order to set up a web page. The first one is a domain name that will open your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is fundamentally the data storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet different solutions, and you require them both to have a running web portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it consists of 2 components – 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 select the SLD of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between one and 10 years. They may involve more specifications about the registrant.

Domain Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will show the 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 specific registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosting companies provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from one single web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each hosting corporation has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.wisehostnetwork.com and ns2.www.wisehostnetwork.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the opportunity to modify the name server records and point the domain name to one web hosting corporation or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy web hosting Solutions

The moment the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting vendor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get various online services. The most important one is that the web page files that you have on the server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create email box accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a business online portal, being available online and being allowed to use electronic mail accounts with your domain name are the two most significant options that you get with a web hosting plan. If you have a business web portal – it will identify your business before your visitors or clients. Therefore you need a stable provider that will furnish a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
