Cheap Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two entities you require so as to start a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is fundamentally the storage space on a web server where the site files will be placed, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 connected, yet different solutions, and you require them both in order to have a running web site.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 100 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it contains 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between one and 10 years. They may entail additional specifications with respect to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web 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 display your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a given company and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting firms provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from one single website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each hosting vendor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.mooserver.com and ns2.mooserver.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain offers you the opportunity to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting vendor or another.
The Necessity for Dependable Web Hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting company and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain various online services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you host on the server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish email address accounts such as [email protected] and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you run a personal or a business online portal, being available online and being allowed to use mail accounts with your domain are the two most fundamental things that you get with a web hosting account. In case you have a business online portal – it will identify your business before your visitors or customers. Therefore you need a stable web hosting supplier that will deliver a fast and steady hosting solution.
