Half-Priced Hosting Services for Your TLDs

There are two entities you require so as to launch a website. The first one is a domain name that will open your web page when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is basically the hard disk space on a hosting server where the web site files will be located, plus several more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 linked, yet different services, and you demand them both to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it contains 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular period of time between 1 and 10 years. They may include additional specifications about the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting account where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the site files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a specific registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting providers offer both services and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from one and the same web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each web hosting service provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.sknhosting.host and ns2.sknhosting.host, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the option to change the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.

The Necessity for Reliable Website Hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting supplier and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive different web services. The most important one is that the web page files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be accessible when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mails like name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you have a personal or a business web site, being online and being enabled to use email boxes with your domain are the two most important things that you obtain with a web hosting account. If you host a corporate web site – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. For that reason you demand a dependable web host that will provide a reliable and steady web hosting service.
