Discounted Hosting Plans for Your TLDs

There are two items you need so as to kick off a website. The first one is a domain name that will open your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is fundamentally the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two connected, yet different solutions, and you require both of them in order to have a working online portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it contains two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain span of time between one and 10 yrs. They may have other prerequisites when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the web page files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your site. You can have a domain name registered with a specific company and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosting companies offer both services and it is more time-saving to handle everything from one single web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting vendor has at least 2 name servers - ns1.somalihosting.com and ns2.somalihosting.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name offers you the possibility to modify the name servers and point the domain to one hosting vendor or another.

The Need of Reliable website hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting distributor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get various web services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up electronic mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a business online portal, being accessible online and being allowed to set up mail addresses with your domain name are the two most significant things that you obtain with a website hosting plan. If you run a business site – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or clients. Therefore you require a stable hosting supplier that will offer a fast and stable website hosting service.
