There are two items you need so as to establish a website. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is essentially the data storage space on a web server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are two associated, yet different services, and you need both of them so as to have a functioning site.
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of two components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a set number of TLDs to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between one and 10 years. They may contain other requirements with respect to the registrant.
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting package where you have to host it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the website files that you host in the account, in other words it will exhibit your web site. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting suppliers offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle everything from one web hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each web hosting vendor has at least 2 name servers - ns1.ebusinesspanel.com and ns2.ebusinesspanel.com, for instance. The hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name gives you the opportunity to change the name server records and point the domain name to one hosting supplier or another.
The moment the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will obtain various web services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up email address accounts like email@example.com and utilize webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a business site, being accessible online and being allowed to create e-mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most important options that you receive with a hosting plan. If you have a business site – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. This is the reason why you require a trustworthy hosting supplier that will provide a fast and stable web hosting solution.
