Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two entities you demand so as to host a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your web page when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is principally the disk space on a web server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are two linked, yet separate services, and you need them both in order to have a functioning online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of 2 components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular spell of time between 1 and ten years. They may entail additional specifications concerning the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web site. You can have a domain registered with one provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting distributors provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from one single web hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each host has at least two name servers - ns1.thegreat.host and ns2.thegreat.host, for instance. The hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the possibility to modify the name servers and point the domain name to one hosting supplier or another.

The Demand for Stable Web Hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will get various services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mail address accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a business web page, being available online and being able to use emails with your domain name are the two most significant things that come with a web hosting plan. In case you run a corporate website – it will identify your business before your visitors or clients. For that reason you demand a dependable service provider that will supply a fast and stable web hosting service.
