Affordable Web Hosting Packages for Your TLDs

There are two things you require in order to start a site. The first one is a domain name that will open your online portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is basically the data storage space on a server where the web site files will be placed, plus several more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 connected, yet separate solutions, and you require both of them in order to have a functioning web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is made of 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may entail additional requirements regarding the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a hosting account where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will exhibit the content that you have in the account, in other words it will display your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain company and receive the hosting service from another, although many web hosting vendors offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer all services from a single web hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each company has at least 2 name servers - ns1.tigerhosts.eu and ns2.tigerhosts.eu, for instance. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain name gives you the opportunity to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting company or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy Hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will get various online services. The most important one is that the website files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create email addresses like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of 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 set up electronic mailboxes with your domain are the two most cardinal options that you get with a website hosting plan. In case you have a corporate website – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. Therefore you demand a reliable hosting corporation that will provide a fast and steady website hosting service.
