What is a Domain Hosting Service?
The presence of a registered domain name is not enough for you to use it for your website's purposes. To be available online, your domain must point to a name server. The name server gives the DNS system information about the IP addresses and the hosts of the services offered by that domain, thus making the domain accessible online. Depending on the features provided with the domain hosting plan, you can host a single domain or multiple domains. Single domain hosting services are usually provided by domain registrars or together with personal low-cost web hosting offers. Multiple domain hosting solutions, on the other hand, come with premium business and corporate web hosting services.
What Do I Need to Host a Domain?
In order to add name server settings to your domain, first you need to have a DNS hosting account. The DNS hosting service is usually provided together with your web hosting account. Once you set the web hosting account's default DNS settings to your domain and add it in the account's hosted domains list, it will become hosted in the current account and will appear online.
What is a Quality Domain Hosting Solution?
The domain hosting service can be provided by the domain registrar together with the domain registration or transfer. You can also host your domain with another company. For example, you can use the domain hosting service provided by your web hosting provider. The quality of the domain hosting service depends on the list of features provided together with your domain hosting plan. The list of the basic features of every domain hosting plan includes an option for managing the domain's DNS settings. But the premium domain hosting providers offer their clients greater packages with more features. Such service is the domain forwarding which can be established by pointing the domain's CNAME Record to another host, or by setting a different IP for the domain's DNS Host Record settings. Other domain hosting services provided by premium hosting providers are: the ID Protection service, the Parked Domains and the complete DNS Management options.
