Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 things you demand so as to launch a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is essentially the data storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be situated, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 similar, yet different services, and you demand both of them in order to have a running web site.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 80 tlds

Prices Starts From: $14.04 /yr

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it comprises two components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of TLDs to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain spell of time between 1 and ten years. They may include other preconditions with respect to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the web content that you host in the account, in other words it will open your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a particular company and receive the hosting service from another, even though many hosts provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from a single website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each hosting distributor has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.greathosts.biz and ns2.www.greathosts.biz, for instance. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain name gives you the possibility to change the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting supplier or another.

The Necessity for Stable Hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting firm and is added to their web servers, you will receive various services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you accommodate on the server will now be accessible when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create electronic mails like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a business website, being accessible online and being able to use mail address accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal options that you get with a web hosting package. If you manage a business website – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or clients. That is why you require a trustworthy hosting distributor that will deliver a dependable and stable website hosting service.
