There are 2 entities you need so as to establish a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web site when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is primarily the disk storage space on a web server where the web page files will be placed, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 interconnected, yet different services, and you need both of them so as to have an operational website.
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it is composed of two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between one and ten years. They may impose additional requirements with respect to the registrant.
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will show the content that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a certain provider and get the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting companies provide both services and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from one and the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name servers. Each web hosting provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.pricetohost.com and ns2.pricetohost.com, for example. The hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the opportunity to change the NS records and point the domain to one provider or another.
The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting firm and is added to their servers, you will receive different services. The most important one is that the web page files that you have on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mailbox accounts such as email@example.com and use webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate website, being accessible online and being allowed to set up e-mail box accounts with your domain name are the two most significant options that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you run a corporate site – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. For this reason you demand a reliable web hosting provider that will provide a reliable and steady website hosting service.
