There are two things you require so as to establish a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is principally the storage space on a server where the website files will be situated, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are two similar, yet different solutions, and you need them both in order to have a running web site.
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is composed of 2 parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular period of time between 1 and 10 years. They may involve additional preconditions with respect to the registrant.
As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting account where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web content that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your online portal. You can have a domain registered with one registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of providers offer both services and it is more time-saving to handle everything from a single web hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each host has at least 2 name servers - ns1.modernhost.co and ns2.modernhost.co, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name offers you the opportunity to modify the name server records and point the domain to one host or another.
As soon as the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting vendor and is added to their web servers, you will obtain several web services. The most important one is that the website files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create electronic mailboxes such as email@example.com and avail of webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate web portal, being accessible online and being enabled to set up e-mail addresses with your domain are the two most pivotal things that you receive with a web hosting plan. If you administer a business web page – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. That is why you need a reliable hosting firm that will offer a reliable and stable hosting service.
