Cheap Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two entities you require in order to kick off a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a hosting plan, which is principally the hard disk storage space on a server where the website files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet separate solutions, and you require them both so as to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain?

Prices Starts From: $12.99 /yr

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is made of two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between one and 10 yrs. They may have other prerequisites with regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will exhibit the website files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosts provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer everything from one and the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, because 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 accomplish that, you need to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each web hosting firm has at least two name servers - ns1.greathosts.biz and ns2.greathosts.biz, for instance. The hosting CP that you have for your domain name offers you the opportunity to alter the name servers and point the domain to one provider or another.

The Need of Stable Website Hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting firm and is added to their hosting servers, you will get a number of online services. The most vital one is that the website files that you have on the server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mails like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate website, being accessible online and being able to create email mailbox accounts with your domain are the two most significant options that you get with a web hosting plan. In case you have a corporate site – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or clients. For that reason you require a reliable web hosting vendor that will supply a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
