Budget Web Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names

There are 2 things you require in order to host a website. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the disk space on a server where the site files will be placed, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two connected, yet different solutions, and you require both of them to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick 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 comprises 2 entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, 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 to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between 1 and ten years. They may entail more specifications when it comes 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 account where you have to host it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the web content that you have in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting firms provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle all services from one and the same web hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each hosting firm has at least two nameservers - ns1.freelancewebhosting.services and ns2.freelancewebhosting.services, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name gives you the chance to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting distributor or another.

The Demand for Stable Hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will receive different web services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you have on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail addresses like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a business site, being accessible online and being able to use e-mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that you obtain with a website hosting account. In case you run a corporate web portal – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. This is why you demand a stable web hosting supplier that will deliver a fast and stable website hosting service.
