Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two features you need so as to run a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two related, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both in order to have a running website.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 80 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it is made of two constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of TLDs to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain spell of time between one and ten years. They may impose additional specifications in relation to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the content that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a particular provider and obtain the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosting distributors provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from a single website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting distributor has at least 2 name servers - ns1.hostitbetter.com and ns2.hostitbetter.com, for instance. The Control Panel that you utilize for your domain offers you the option to modify the name servers and point the domain name to one hosting company or another.
The Necessity for Dependable Web Hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting corporation and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you have on the server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up email mailboxes like firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate web site, being online and being able to use mail address accounts with your domain are the two most significant things that come with a website hosting plan. In case you have a business web portal – it will single out your business before your website visitors or customers. For this reason you demand a stable web hosting provider that will furnish a fast and stable web hosting solution.
