Low-Cost Hosting Services for Your Domains


There are two entities you require in order to have a website. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is basically the hard disk space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are two related, yet different solutions, and you need both of them to have an operational site.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 140 tlds

Prices Starts From: 0.00 /yr

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of two constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a finite number of TLDs to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain interval of time between 1 and 10 years. They may impose additional specifications when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the web content that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a specific provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosting companies offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle everything from one and the same hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting distributor has at least two nameservers - ns1.hostgate.org and ns2.hostgate.org, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the possibility to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting firm or another.

The Need of Stable web hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive various web services. The most vital one is that the website files that you have on the web hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create mail accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate online portal, being online and being able to create email box accounts with your domain are the two most important options that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you administer a corporate website – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. That is why you require a reliable hosting distributor that will offer a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
