Moderately Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 features you require so as to own a website. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two similar, yet different services, and you require them both so as to have a functioning website.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is composed of two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of TLDs to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain stretch of time between one and 10 years. They may impose other preconditions about the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will display the web content that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your website. You can have a domain registered with a particular provider and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting firms offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer everything from one and the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting firm has at least two nameservers - ns1.pixalogy.net and ns2.pixalogy.net, for example. The CP that you utilize for your domain gives you the opportunity to change the name server records and point the domain name to one web hosting vendor or another.

The Demand for Reliable website hosting Solutions

The moment the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting corporation and is added to their web servers, you will obtain a number of services. The most vital one is that the website files that you host on the server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mailbox accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a business web site, being accessible online and being able to set up e-mail accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that come with a website hosting package. If you administer a corporate website – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. For this reason you need a stable web hosting vendor that will provide a dependable and stable web hosting service.
