Affordable Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two entities you require so as to start an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your website when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is basically the disk space on a web server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 related, yet separate services, and you need them both so as to have a working web page.

What is a Domain Name?

We offer more than 90 tlds

Prices Starts From: $11.49 /yr

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 name can be up to sixty four characters long and it is composed of two parts – a Top-Level Domain (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 choose the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain span of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may entail more specifications with regard to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a hosting package where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your site. You can have a domain registered with one provider and get the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting firms offer both services and it is more time-saving to handle all services from the same website hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each hosting distributor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.hostomedia.com and ns2.hostomedia.com, for instance. The hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the possibility to alter the nameservers and point the domain name to one web host or another.

The Need of Trustworthy website hosting Solutions

The moment the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting corporation and is added to their hosting servers, you will get several services. The most important one is that the website files that you host on the server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish mailboxes like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate web page, being available online and being enabled to use email mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that you obtain with a website hosting package. In case you run a business online portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or customers. That's why you need a reliable service provider that will supply a dependable and stable web hosting service.
