Low-Cost Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are 2 features you demand in order to own an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is essentially the hard disk storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be located, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 connected, yet separate solutions, and you require both of them to have a working website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it is composed of 2 components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of TLDs to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain stretch of time between one and ten years. They may entail additional preconditions in regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your site. You can have a domain registered with a certain provider and receive the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting suppliers offer both services and it is more convenient to administer all services from one and the same web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting service provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.delvahosting.com and ns2.delvahosting.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain gives you the possibility to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting provider or another.

The Necessity for Dependable web hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will obtain various online services. The most important one is that the website files that you keep on the hosting server will now be accessible when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mail accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a business web page, being accessible online and being able to create email addresses with your domain are the two most essential things that you obtain with a website hosting package. If you manage a corporate website – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. That is why you demand a stable company that will furnish a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
