Domain Names and Hosting Services
Domain names are somehow similar to a person’s contact/phone number. When you have to contact someone you dial their number and talk to them. Similarly, websites are also assigned certain numbers in order to distinguish them from each other and these numbers are called IP addresses (for example 192.168.1.1). These numbers can be hard to remember for normal human beings so the domain name system also known as DNS came up with an idea to giving names to these IP numbers which are easier to remember for humans. You can choose any domain names that are available. As soon as you register a domain name it gets connected/associated with a unique IP address. So if you want to know more about domain names and hosting services then follow this article to the end.
Further breaking down the domain name we can divide the domain names into certain parts which can be easier to understand.

Another confusion that may arrive after choosing the domain name is what TLD should I choose?, what are the best TLDs that best suites my domain name? Well, the answer to that question is in the nature of your business/organization. There are different TLDs available so that it may be easier to categorize according to its nature.
.com– This is an open TLD meaning any person or organization is authorized to use .com as their TLD. .com are generally used by commercial organizations and businesses however this can be used by any domain names as they like.
.np– This is a TLD used for domains generally based in-country Nepal. .np is a TLD is best used when the targeted audience is located in Nepal only. However, if your targeted audience can be location independent then it’s better to use other TLDs.There are different TLDs based on different countries like as .np for Nepal, .in for India, .us for America, etc.
Different types of TLDs
.org This is an open TLD; any person or organization is permitted for its use. Mostly .org is used by non-profit organizations.
.net- This is also an open TLD. This TLD is generally intended to use by domains pointing toward a distributed network for example IPSs.

Well, these processes/information are nearly enough to know about domain names and domain registration. Then what next? The next process is called hosting. Web hosting is a service that helps organizations/businesses put on their content on the internet.

There are many packages among hosting that you can choose from the web hosting service provider, among them the most popular and widely used packages are:
- Shared hosting
- Dedicated hosting
- Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting
The prices of these packages varies in accordance to them but one should be very careful while choosing a hosting plan. You can’t choose shared hosting for a website which is expecting high network traffic. It’s better to choose Dedicated hosting for a website with high traffic and transactions as dedicated servers provide better bandwidth, storage then shared hosting. But that doesn’t mean that shared hosting is useless, there are certain conditions where shared hosting is deemed wise choice than other forms of hosting. When the expected data traffic on the website is low and doesn’t involve a certain transaction then shared hosting is better than other hosting. Most blogs use the shared hosting. But for websites that are business-oriented rather than being informative then it is advised to use the VPS hosting as these websites require faster execution, larger storage, high bandwidth, etc and VPS hosting is capable to provide that.
