Affordable Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names

There are 2 entities you need so as to host a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web page when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is principally the storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are two similar, yet separate services, and you need both of them in order to have a working online portal.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 140 tlds

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of TLDs to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between one and 10 years. They may involve other requirements in regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a hosting plan where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the content that you host in the account, in other words it will show your website. You can have a domain registered with a particular provider and get the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting firms offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each company has at least 2 name servers - ns1.blueribbonhosting.com and ns2.blueribbonhosting.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain offers you the possibility to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting corporation or another.

The Necessity for Dependable Web Hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting firm and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get different online services. The most important one is that the web page files that you keep on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish mail address accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate online portal, being online and being enabled to use mailboxes with your domain name are the two most pivotal things that you receive with a web hosting account. In case you run a business web site – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. That is the reason why you need a stable web hosting company that will supply a fast and stable web hosting solution.
