Cheap Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains

There are 2 features you require so as to have a website. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two interconnected, yet separate services, and you demand them both in order to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 140 tlds

Prices Starts From: 0.00 /yr

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it contains 2 parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of TLDs to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may impose other requirements with respect to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a hosting package where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will show the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although lots of hosting suppliers offer both services and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from one single hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.123megahost.com and ns2.123megahost.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain name offers you the option to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one web hosting distributor or another.

The Demand for Reliable Hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting company and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive a number of online services. The most important one is that the web page files that you have on the web server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish email addresses such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you have a personal or a business web portal, being online and being able to set up mail accounts with your domain are the two most important things that you obtain with a website hosting package. In case you manage a business web site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. That is the reason why you need a reliable provider that will provide a fast and steady website hosting service.
