Affordable Hosting Packages for Your Domains

There are two features you require in order to set up a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your web site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is principally the data storage space on a hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 interconnected, yet separate services, and you require both of them so as to have an operational site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set number of top-level domain names to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between 1 and ten years. They may involve more requirements in relation to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your site. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosting suppliers provide both services and it is more convenient to handle everything from the same web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each web hosting supplier has at least 2 name servers - ns1.ebdhosting.com and ns2.ebdhosting.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the opportunity to change the name servers and point the domain to one hosting company or another.

The Need of Stable website hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting firm and is added to their hosting servers, you will get a number of web services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you keep on the server will now be accessible when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up mailboxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you run a personal or a business web page, being online and being allowed to use electronic mails with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that come with a web hosting account. In case you administer a corporate website – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. This is the reason why you need a stable hosting distributor that will supply a fast and stable web hosting service.
