Affordably Priced Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are 2 things you demand so as to launch a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is basically the disk space on a hosting server where the site files will be located, plus several more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting package are two associated, yet different services, and you need both of them so as to have a working site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises two constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of TLDs to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may impose other stipulations concerning the registrant.

Domain Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the web content that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web page. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though many hosting vendors offer both services and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from the same website hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.bluegelwebsitehosting.com and ns2.bluegelwebsitehosting.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the opportunity to alter the name server records and point the domain name to one service provider or another.

The Demand for Dependable Hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will get a number of online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you host on the hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mail boxes like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web site, being available online and being enabled to use mail addresses with your domain are the two most essential things that you receive with a website hosting plan. If you host a corporate web page – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. For that reason you demand a trustworthy hosting firm that will supply a reliable and steady hosting service.
