Low-Price Web Hosting Services for Your Domain Names

There are two things you need in order to open a web page. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your site when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is inherently the disk space on a web server where the website files will be situated, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 connected, yet separate services, and you require both of them so as to have an operational web portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, 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 certain number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain spell of time between one and ten years. They may entail other preconditions with respect to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to host it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will show the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your website. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting distributors provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from one web hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the 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 name - the so-called name servers. Each hosting vendor has at least two name servers - ns1.jordanhosting.us and ns2.jordanhosting.us, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name gives you the chance to alter the name server records and point the domain to one hosting company or another.

The Necessity for Trustworthy Web Hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting corporation and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain several online services. The most important one is that the website files that you keep on the hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mail boxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate web portal, being accessible online and being able to set up e-mail box accounts with your domain name are the two most essential options that you get with a website hosting package. If you host a business site – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or customers. Therefore you demand a trustworthy provider that will offer a fast and stable hosting service.
