Affordable Hosting Services for Your TLDs

There are 2 features you demand in order to set up a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your online portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk storage space on a server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two connected, yet different services, and you require both of them to have a functioning web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is made of two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of TLDs to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given span of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may involve other requirements with regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to add it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the site files that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your web site. You can have a domain registered with one company and receive the hosting service from another, although many hosting service providers provide both solutions and it is more convenient to manage all services from one and the same web hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each hosting distributor has at least 2 name servers - ns1.brainchildhosting.com and ns2.brainchildhosting.com, for example. The hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the chance to alter the name server records and point the domain to one company or another.

The Demand for Reliable Website Hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting distributor and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain different services. The most important one is that the web page files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up email box accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a business web page, being online and being allowed to use e-mail addresses with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that you obtain with a website hosting plan. In case you own a corporate web page – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. For this reason you demand a trustworthy web hosting company that will furnish a dependable and stable web hosting service.
