Affordably Priced Web Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are 2 items you demand so as to open a website. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is primarily the disk storage space on a web server where the web site files will be situated, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting account are two related, yet separate services, and you require them both to have a running web page.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it involves two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given period of time between one and ten years. They may entail other prerequisites in regard to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the website files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a certain company and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting service providers offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle everything from one single web hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting distributor has at least 2 name servers - ns1.papuaweb.net and ns2.papuaweb.net, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain offers you the option to modify the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting company or another.

The Necessity for Stable website hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting vendor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get different online services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you host on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up mailbox accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you have a personal or a business web page, being available online and being permitted to create e-mail boxes with your domain are the two most essential things that you receive with a web hosting account. If you run a business website – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. That is the reason why you require a reliable hosting supplier that will furnish a fast and stable website hosting service.
