Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 things you demand in order to own a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is primarily the data storage space on a hosting server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 connected, yet different services, and you require both of them to have a running online portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 80 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it comprises two components – 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 Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a finite number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular spell of time between 1 and ten years. They may contain more stipulations in relation to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to add it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a specific provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though a lot of service providers offer both services and it is more time-saving to administer all services from a single hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting vendor has at least two name servers - ns1.abchost.co.uk and ns2.abchost.co.uk, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain offers you the opportunity to alter the name server records and point the domain to one web hosting firm or another.
The Need of Reliable web hosting Solutions
Once the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting distributor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain a number of services. The most important one is that the web site files that you have on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mail boxes like firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you host a personal or a business online portal, being online and being able to set up email addresses with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that you obtain with a hosting account. In case you own a corporate online portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or clients.
