Affordably Priced Web Hosting Services for Your Domains
There are 2 items you need in order to launch an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is principally the storage space on a hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 related, yet different services, and you demand both of them to have a functioning web site.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 50 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain interval of time between one and 10 years. They may involve additional specifications concerning the registrant.
Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will display the web content that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a specific registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosting providers provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from one single web hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name 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 so-called NS records. Each host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.step2rays.biz and ns2.step2rays.biz, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name gives you the opportunity to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting service provider or another.
The Need of Stable Hosting Services
As soon as the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting supplier and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive several services. The most important one is that the web page files that you host on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish mailboxes like firstname.lastname@example.org and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate site, being accessible online and being able to create e-mailboxes with your domain name are the two most essential things that come with a website hosting plan. If you administer a business web page – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. For that reason you require a dependable web hosting vendor that will supply a dependable and steady web hosting service.
