Cheap Hosting Services for Your Domains

There are two entities you require so as to have a web page. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your online portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a server where the web site files will be situated, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 related, yet separate services, and you demand them both to have a running web portal.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 140 tlds

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is made of 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular period of time between 1 and ten years. They may involve more requirements when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the site files that you host in the account, in other words it will open your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a particular company and obtain the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosts provide both services and it is more time-saving to manage all services from a single website hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each hosting vendor has at least two name servers - ns1.linux-hosts-inc.com and ns2.linux-hosts-inc.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name gives you the option to change the NS records and point the domain name to one host or another.

The Necessity for Dependable website hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will receive a number of online services. The most essential one is that the site files that you host on the web hosting server will now be accessible when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up email mailboxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a business online portal, being online and being permitted to set up email mailbox accounts with your domain are the two most significant things that you receive with a website hosting plan. If you administer a corporate online portal – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. That is why you require a stable hosting service provider that will supply a fast and stable web hosting service.
