Cheap Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 things you need in order to launch a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 similar, yet separate services, and you require them both so as to have a functioning online portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it includes 2 entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may have more prerequisites when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to host it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the web site files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your online portal. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and get the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting firms provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer everything from the same hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each hosting vendor has at least two nameservers - ns1.hotdogjoe.com and ns2.hotdogjoe.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain gives you the possibility to alter the name server records and point the domain to one hosting company or another.
The Demand for Reliable web hosting Solutions
The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will get various web services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you host on the hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create electronic mailboxes such as firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate site, being accessible online and being enabled to use email mailboxes with your domain name are the two most important options that you receive with a web hosting package. If you administer a corporate online portal – it will identify your business before your visitors or customers. That is the reason why you need a dependable web hosting supplier that will supply a fast and steady website hosting solution.
