Moderately Priced Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names


There are two things you need so as to have a web page. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is inherently the storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be situated, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 similar, yet separate services, and you demand them both in order to have a running site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it consists of two parts – 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. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain 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 one and ten yrs. They may entail other preconditions about the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting package where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the web content that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and get the hosting service from another, although a lot of providers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from one hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each company has at least two nameservers - ns1.smarthostkenya.com and ns2.smarthostkenya.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the option to modify the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting provider or another.

The Need of Dependable website hosting Solutions

The moment the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain a number of services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you host on the server will now be available online when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail box accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you manage a personal or a business web portal, being online and being permitted to use email box accounts with your domain are the two most important things that you obtain with a website hosting package. If you host a corporate online portal – it will identify your business before your visitors or clients. This is why you require a stable web hosting vendor that will supply a dependable and steady hosting solution.
