Cheap Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two items you require in order to kick off a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your website when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a hosting package, which is principally the storage space on a web server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 similar, yet different services, and you require them both so as to have an operational web portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it is composed of two constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given period of time between one and 10 years. They may have additional preconditions with regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to include it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the content that you have in the account, in other words it will display your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a specific provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosts offer both services and it is more time-saving to handle everything from a single web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting account 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 have to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting supplier has at least 2 name servers - ns1.nameison.com and ns2.nameison.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name gives you the opportunity to change the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting firm or another.

The Demand for Dependable web hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive several online services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you have on the web hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up mailbox accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you host a personal or a business web portal, being available online and being able to create mails with your domain are the two most pivotal options that you receive with a web hosting plan. If you run a corporate web portal – it will identify your business before your visitors or customers. For that reason you need a trustworthy web host that will deliver a reliable and stable website hosting service.
