Low-Priced Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains

There are 2 features you require in order to run a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is inherently the data storage space on a server where the site files will be placed, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 similar, yet different solutions, and you need both of them in order to have a functioning web page.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it consists of 2 parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain 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 particular span of time between one and 10 years. They may impose additional requirements regarding the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a hosting package where you have to host it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will show the website files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web page. You can have a domain name registered with one registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting providers provide both solutions and it is more convenient to handle everything from one single website hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting corporation has at least 2 name servers - ns1.aussiehostingservices.com and ns2.aussiehostingservices.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name gives you the option to modify the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting company or another.

The Demand for Stable web hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting service provider and is added to their web servers, you will obtain several web services. The most vital one is that the website files that you have on the web hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish mail accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate web site, being available online and being enabled to create email address accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that you obtain with a website hosting package. If you have a corporate web portal – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. Therefore you demand a reliable web hosting corporation that will furnish a dependable and steady website hosting service.
