Welcome to Pak Web Service
There are 2 items you need in order to have a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your web site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a server where the site files will be located, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are two similar, yet different solutions, and you demand them both in order to have an operational web portal.
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it comprises two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between one and ten years. They may have additional specifications with regard to the registrant.
As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to host it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will open the site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a specific registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosts provide both services and it is more time-saving to manage all services from one web hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.www.pakwebservice.com and ns2.www.pakwebservice.com, for example. The hosting CP that you have for your domain gives you the opportunity to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting vendor or another.
As soon as the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting company and is added to their web servers, you will get different online services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailbox accounts like [email protected] and use webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate online portal, being online and being permitted to create e-mail boxes with your domain are the two most significant things that you obtain with a web hosting account. In case you run a business web site – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or clients. This is why you need a stable web hosting supplier that will supply a fast and steady web hosting service.
