Affordably Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Domains
There are 2 things you demand so as to open an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is primarily the disk space on a server where the web page files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet different services, and you need them both in order to have a running web page.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it includes 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set number of TLDs to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain span of time between one and ten yrs. They may contain additional preconditions concerning the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to add it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your web site. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosting companies offer both services and it is more convenient to administer everything from a single web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting corporation has at least 2 name servers - ns1.achemahost.com and ns2.achemahost.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the possibility to change the name server records and point the domain to one hosting vendor or another.
The Demand for Stable Web Hosting Services
Once the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting distributor and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain different services. The most essential one is that the website files that you keep on the server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up electronic mails like [email protected] and use webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate site, being accessible online and being enabled to use mail accounts with your domain name are the two most important things that you receive with a web hosting plan. In case you own a corporate online portal – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. That is the reason why you need a stable hosting service provider that will offer a reliable and steady website hosting solution.
