Modestly Priced Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two things you need in order to open an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a hosting plan, which is essentially the data storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be located, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are two interconnected, yet separate services, and you require both of them in order to have an operational online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 0 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it contains 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may contain other preconditions about the registrant.
Domain Name Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting package where you have to host 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 show your web portal. You can have a domain registered with one company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting providers offer both services and it is more convenient to administer everything from one single hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each service provider has at least two name servers - ns1.alnafaytechnologies.com and ns2.alnafaytechnologies.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the possibility to change the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting corporation or another.
The Necessity for Reliable Web Hosting Services
Once the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will get several online services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you host on the web server will now be accessible when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mails such as email@example.com and make use of webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate online portal, being accessible online and being allowed to create mailboxes with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that you get with a website hosting plan. If you host a business web portal – it will single out your business before your visitors or clients. That is why you need a dependable web hosting company that will offer a fast and steady hosting solution.
