Budget Hosting Services for Your Domains

There are 2 items you need in order to own a web site. The first one is a domain name that will show your online portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is basically the data storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 related, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them to have an operational web site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is composed of two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, 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 of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between 1 and 10 years. They may contain more specifications about the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting package where you have to host it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web page files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your web page. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although lots of providers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one single hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting company has at least two nameservers - ns1.fidulink-hosting.com and ns2.fidulink-hosting.com, for instance. The Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the chance to alter the name servers and point the domain name to one service provider or another.

The Need of Stable Website Hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive a number of services. The most important one is that the website files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create email boxes like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate website, being available online and being enabled to create emails with your domain are the two most significant things that you get with a web hosting package. In case you have a corporate website – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. That is why you need a stable hosting vendor that will supply a fast and stable hosting solution.
