Cut-Price Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two items you require so as to host a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk space on a hosting server where the site files will be placed, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are two interconnected, yet separate services, and you require both of them so as to have an operational web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it consists of two components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain spell of time between 1 and ten years. They may contain more specifications with regard to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the web content that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your online portal. You can have a domain registered with one registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting vendors provide both services and it is more convenient to administer everything from one and the same website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name servers. Each web hosting firm has at least two name servers - ns1.fdshosting.co.uk and ns2.fdshosting.co.uk, for instance. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain name gives you the possibility to alter the name server records and point the domain name to one hosting firm or another.

The Demand for Stable Website Hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting service provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain various web services. The most important one is that the web page files that you have on the web server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you run a personal or a business website, being available online and being allowed to set up e-mails with your domain name are the two most important options that you obtain with a website hosting plan. If you own a business online portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. For that reason you require a stable web hosting firm that will provide a fast and steady hosting solution.
