Cheap Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 entities you demand in order to run a website. The first one is a domain name that will open your online portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is essentially the hard disk storage space on a server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 related, yet different services, and you require them both so as to have a functioning web site.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 80 tlds

Prices Starts From: $11.49 /yr

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it contains two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed span of time between one and 10 yrs. They may entail additional prerequisites in regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting plan where you have to include it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with one provider and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of companies provide both services and it is more convenient to manage everything from one single web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each web host has at least two nameservers - ns1.hostomedia.com and ns2.hostomedia.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name gives you the opportunity to modify the NS records and point the domain to one hosting distributor or another.

The Need of Dependable Website Hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will get various services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you have on the hosting server will now be accessible when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create mail address accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate web page, being accessible online and being enabled to set up email boxes with your domain are the two most important options that you obtain with a website hosting account. In case you manage a corporate web portal – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. This is the reason why you demand a stable company that will provide a reliable and stable website hosting solution.
