Low-Cost Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains

There are 2 things you demand so as to run a website. The first one is a domain name that will display your web page when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is inherently the disk space on a hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus several more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 linked, yet separate services, and you demand both of them to have a functioning online portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it is composed of 2 entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, 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 fixed spell of time between one and 10 years. They may involve other specifications with regard to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the web site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your web site. You can have a domain name registered with one provider and receive the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting service providers offer both services and it is more convenient to manage everything from one single web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name server records. Each hosting supplier has at least two name servers - ns1.efiservers.com and ns2.efiservers.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain name gives you the opportunity to change the NS records and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.

The Need of Reliable Hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting service provider and is added to their servers, you will receive a number of online services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you host on the web hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate website, being accessible online and being able to use email mailboxes with your domain are the two most fundamental things that come with a website hosting account. In case you host a business web page – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. This is why you need a stable web hosting vendor that will provide a reliable and steady hosting solution.
