Description of Web Hosting Plans
Owning a web site at present is a necessity in terms of sharing personal views, promoting a new business or just remaining up to date with the latest trends. As e-mails have replaced paper letters long ago and users search for more or less everything on the web, it is a splendid idea to construct a web site where clients can find out about you or your business - this is a way to get closer to them, to explain to them what you think or what you provide. Let us take a look at what you demand in order to establish a web site and the different web hosting services that enable you to fulfill that.
A Domain Name - The Online Address You Must Commence With
First of all, you need a domain name - this is the Internet address that people would type in their web browser to get to your website. It should be something that is easy to remember, but also something that is associated with the content of your site. Visitors would invariably wish something brief and easy and this is the first step toward having some regular website visitors.
Picking The Suitable Domain Extension For Your Domain Name(s)
The domain name consists of two pieces - the name itself and the extension, or technically speaking - an SLD (Second-Level Domain) and a TLD (Top-Level Domain). If we have "example.com", "example" is the Second-Level Domain, and ".com" is the TLD. The top-level domain names are divided into generic top-level domain names - .com, .net, .info, .biz; and country-code top-level domain names - .us, .de, .es, and so on. While the .com/.net/.org top-level domain names are the most popular Top-Level Domains, certain users might be searching for a regional business, so have that in mind when you are choosing a domain for your online portal. If you are in Spain, for example, an .es domain and a website in Spanish would probably be a finer option than a .com site in English. Sure enough, you can have both, targeting a more substantial group of people, so in this instance it would be great if you could discover a web hosting services provider that provides the possibility of accommodating lots of domain names in one single account. This will save you time and energy as you will be able to administer all domain names and web sites from the very same hosting Control Panel rather than singing in and out incessantly so as to manage a particular domain.
The Web Hosting Service - The Covert Power Behind Each Site

This leads us to the second service that you need for your web page aside from the domain name - the web hosting service itself. In simple terms, this is the disk drive storage space on a company's web server where your files will be stashed. When you write my-domain.com in a browser, you will actually open the website files accommodated in your web hosting account with a hosting distributor. As a matter of fact, the web hosting service is a lot more than that. It is a combination of all the services that let your website become visible on the World Wide Web.
The Monthly Website Bandwidth and Monthly Web Traffic Aspects
Your web content is put on a server and to be able to see this web content, the web hosting corporation allocates a given quota of web hosting bandwidth to your web hosting account, which comes into play each time someone goes to your web site. That quota may vary from a few hundred MB to unmetered, based on the hosting service provider. When you go to a website, the web site files are copied from the web hosting server to your computer and are then displayed in your web browser. A web portal with lots of pics or a substantial amount of downloadable content would consume much more traffic, so this is an essential facet when the time arrives for you to select an appropriate shared web hosting plan.
OZM.ro - The Advisable Web Hosting Provider
Another functionality that comes with your package is the possibility to create mail addresses with your very own domain name. For a family-oriented web site, this may be something noncompulsory, but for a reputable corporation it is more or less compulsory to have email accounts that are using the firm's domain. This makes the company appear more professional in the eyes of both existent partners and future clients. Based on the hosting plan, the number of the electronic mail accounts or the email mailbox size may be restricted, but to remain up to date with what companies require, we at OZM.ro offer an unlimited number of email boxes and an unmetered email box size allowance, thus measuring up to the demands of any small or large-sized commercial enterprise. There is both webmail and email client support available, so you can check your email boxes from a personal computer, a palmtop computer or even a cellular phone.
Database Support (MySQL, PostgreSQL, etc.)
For script-driven sites, almost all hosts provide database support. A database is a set of tables used for administering and restoring data exhibited on a web site. One of the most proper instances would be a discussion board - all usernames, passwords, and forum threads are stashed in a database and are called and displayed on the web site by the discussion board script when a particular forum page is being looked up. This renders the web site more efficient since only the data that is requested is retrieved and exhibited. Databases are used with the majority of open-source PHP-driven scripts, including ecommerce web sites, and are an essential part of the typical hosting service these days. There are various types of database management systems - MySQL, PostgreSQL, MSSQL, and so on. Which one you require depends on two things - which one(s) the concrete host supports, and which type is demanded by the script that you want to utilize. It is essential to verify these details before you pick a web hosting supplier.
File Transfer Protocol Support (Uploads, Downloads)
Another service that normally is included in a web hosting package is FTP access. FTP means File Transfer Protocol, and it is the most common method of copying web site files to or from a distant hosting server. You can upload your site through a File Transfer Protocol app, but most web design apps also have an in-built File Transfer Protocol functionality, so you can upload all your files with one single click of the mouse straight from the application you have utilized to create them. For any subsequent revisions, you simply have to edit the website and then upload the edited website files, which makes administering your web site very simple and time-effective.
Supplementary Domain and Web App Solutions
Additional services may comprise domain name management, an online web site building tool and an open-source PHP script installer. Although they are not mandatorily offered by all web hosting suppliers, they are becoming a part of the normal web hosting plan due to the huge demand for an all-embracing web hosting solution where all the abovementioned functionalities are available and can be administered through a single CP.
