Cheap Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two entities you require so as to start a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is principally the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 connected, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them in order to have a working web page.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 50 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is made of 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between 1 and ten years. They may impose other requirements when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to host it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will display the web site files that you host in the account, in other words it will open your site. You can have a domain registered with a particular registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosting providers provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from one single website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each hosting vendor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.plentyhosting.net and ns2.plentyhosting.net, for example. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the possibility to alter the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting supplier or another.
The Demand for Reliable Website Hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will obtain different online services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you have on the server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create electronic mailboxes such as firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a business online portal, being available online and being enabled to create email mailboxes with your domain are the two most fundamental things that you obtain with a web hosting package. If you host a corporate online portal – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. Therefore you need a dependable company that will offer a reliable and stable web hosting solution.
