Half-Priced Hosting Packages for Your Domains

There are 2 things you need in order to run a web page. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is principally the hard disk space on a server where the web page files will be situated, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two associated, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them so as to have a working online portal.

What is a Domain?

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 symbols long and it comprises two components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain spell of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may impose additional preconditions in regard to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the web content that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your website. You can have a domain name registered with a certain company and obtain the hosting service from another, although many hosting providers provide both services and it is more convenient to handle everything from one website hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each host has at least 2 name servers - ns1.axcloud.host and ns2.axcloud.host, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the possibility to change the nameservers and point the domain name to one web host or another.

The Demand for Dependable Hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting company and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain various services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you keep on the hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up email addresses like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a business web portal, being accessible online and being allowed to create electronic mail accounts with your domain are the two most fundamental options that you receive with a hosting package. If you administer a corporate web site – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or customers. For this reason you require a stable web hosting vendor that will offer a fast and steady hosting service.
