Moderately Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names

There are 2 entities you demand in order to set up a web site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your site when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a hosting account, which is primarily the storage space on a server where the web site files will be located, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are two related, yet separate solutions, and you require both of them to have a working site.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves two constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to pick 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 1 and ten years. They may impose more stipulations with regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the web content that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web page. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and get the hosting service from another, although a lot of service providers provide both services and it is more convenient to handle everything from one single web hosting CP user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web 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 commonly named NS records. Each web hosting distributor has at least two nameservers - ns1.visionsbiz-online.net and ns2.visionsbiz-online.net, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the opportunity to change the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting distributor or another.

The Necessity for Dependable web hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting company and is added to their web servers, you will receive several web services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you have on the server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up email boxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you own a personal or a business website, being accessible online and being allowed to create electronic mail accounts with your domain are the two most essential things that you get with a website hosting package. In case you administer a business web site – it will single out your business before your visitors or clients. That is why you require a trustworthy provider that will supply a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
