Cheap Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two features you demand so as to kick off a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a hosting plan, which is inherently the disk space on a server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 similar, yet different solutions, and you need both of them in order to have a working web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between 1 and 10 years. They may impose other preconditions with regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to host it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will show the files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your website. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many hosting companies offer both services and it is more convenient to handle all services from the same web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each hosting supplier has at least 2 name servers - ns1.xhosters.com and ns2.xhosters.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name gives you the possibility to change the name servers and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.

The Need of Trustworthy website hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting corporation and is added to their servers, you will receive several web services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish mail accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you manage a personal or a business web portal, being accessible online and being enabled to use mailboxes with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that you receive with a website hosting account. If you own a corporate website – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. Therefore you demand a reliable web hosting firm that will deliver a reliable and stable website hosting service.
