Half-Priced Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names

There are two things you need in order to set up an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your online portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is principally the disk space on a server where the website files will be situated, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are two interconnected, yet separate services, and you demand both of them in order to have a running web site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it contains two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a finite number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular spell of time between 1 and 10 years. They may include more requirements with regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting plan where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the web page files that you host in the account, in other words it will open your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a particular company and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting service providers offer both solutions and it is more convenient to handle all services from one single web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each hosting firm has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.flexilinuxhost.com and ns2.www.flexilinuxhost.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the chance to change the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting service provider or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy Hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting vendor and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive several web services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you host on the web server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up email accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate web page, being accessible online and being able to use e-mail addresses with your domain are the two most important options that you receive with a website hosting account. If you host a corporate web site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. For this reason you require a trustworthy company that will supply a reliable and stable web hosting service.
