Affordable Web Hosting Packages for Your Domains

There are 2 things you demand so as to run an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a hosting package, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a server where the website files will be placed, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 interconnected, yet separate services, and you need them both to have an operational website.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of top-level domain names to select 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 years. They may involve other preconditions with respect to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your website. You can have a domain registered with a particular registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting corporations offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from a single website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain name 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 name server records. Each hosting company has at least 2 name servers - ns1.bokweb.com and ns2.bokweb.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the opportunity to alter the nameservers and point the domain name to one hosting service provider or another.

The Necessity for Stable Hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting firm and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain different web services. The most important one is that the website files that you have on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish electronic mails such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you run a personal or a business web page, being available online and being permitted to use e-mail boxes with your domain are the two most cardinal things that come with a web hosting account. In case you own a business web portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or clients. That's why you need a trustworthy service provider that will offer a fast and steady web hosting solution.
