Affordably Priced Web Hosting Solutions for Your Domain Names

There are two features you need so as to own a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is inherently the data storage space on a server where the web page files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are two similar, yet different services, and you require them both to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it comprises two constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between one and 10 yrs. They may involve additional specifications about the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting package where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the website files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your web page. You can have a domain registered with a certain provider and receive the hosting service from another, although many hosting corporations offer both solutions and it is more convenient to administer everything from the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting distributor has at least two nameservers - ns1.geniusmxcloud.com and ns2.geniusmxcloud.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name gives you the opportunity to change the NS records and point the domain to one hosting provider or another.

The Need of Trustworthy Website Hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting distributor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive several services. The most important one is that the web page files that you host on the hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate web site, being accessible online and being enabled to set up electronic mails with your domain are the two most essential things that you get with a web hosting package. In case you run a business site – it will single out your business before your website visitors or customers. Therefore you need a reliable hosting service provider that will offer a reliable and steady website hosting service.
