Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names

There are 2 items you demand in order to own a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is inherently the storage space on a server where the website files will be situated, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 linked, yet separate services, and you need them both in order to have a running website.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it involves 2 components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given span of time between 1 and 10 years. They may entail more preconditions regarding the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to include it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will show the site files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your web site. You can have a domain name registered with one provider and receive the hosting service from another, although many hosting corporations provide both solutions and it is more convenient to handle all services from one single hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each service provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.smarthostkenya.com and ns2.smarthostkenya.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain gives you the opportunity to modify the name servers and point the domain name to one hosting company or another.

The Need of Dependable website hosting Solutions

The moment the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting company and is added to their web servers, you will get various services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you have on the server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up email boxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a business online portal, being online and being allowed to use e-mailbox accounts with your domain are the two most important things that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you host a corporate website – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. That is why you need a dependable web hosting provider that will supply a reliable and steady website hosting service.
