Cheap Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two things you need so as to own a web site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your online portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a hosting account, which is primarily the storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be situated, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 interconnected, yet separate services, and you require both of them in order to have a running web site.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it contains 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a set 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 particular stretch of time between one and ten yrs. They may have other stipulations concerning the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a hosting plan where you have to include it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the site files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with one provider and get the hosting service from another, even though many hosting vendors offer both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from a single website hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting supplier has at least 2 name servers - ns1.hostgate.org and ns2.hostgate.org, for example. The CP that you have for your domain name gives you the possibility to modify the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting vendor or another.
The Necessity for Reliable web hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting company and is added to their servers, you will receive a number of online services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you keep on the server will now be available online when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mailbox accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate web portal, being accessible online and being allowed to use e-mails with your domain name are the two most essential options that come with a web hosting account. In case you own a business web portal – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or clients. This is why you demand a reliable web hosting distributor that will provide a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
