Low-Cost Web Hosting Packages for Your TLDs

There are two things you demand in order to own an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is essentially the data storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be situated, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 interconnected, yet different services, and you need both of them to have a functioning online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is made of two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain stretch of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may involve additional prerequisites regarding the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to host it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the content that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a specific company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting providers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from a single web hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting package 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 change a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name servers. Each web hosting corporation has at least two nameservers - ns1.icodehosting.com and ns2.icodehosting.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name gives you the opportunity to change the NS records and point the domain name to one host or another.

The Demand for Reliable website hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive different online services. The most important one is that the website files that you have on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail address accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate web portal, being available online and being able to set up mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that you receive with a hosting plan. If you manage a corporate site – it will identify your business before your website visitors or customers. That is why you demand a reliable hosting service provider that will deliver a reliable and steady website hosting service.
