Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains

There are 2 features you demand in order to have a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal 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 plan are 2 related, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them so as to have a functioning web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed span of time between one and 10 yrs. They may impose additional requirements when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a hosting account where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will display the files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your site. You can have a domain name registered with a given company and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosts provide both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from a single web hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting package 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 have to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each company has at least 2 name servers - ns1.webmasterfortress.com and ns2.webmasterfortress.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the opportunity to change the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting distributor or another.

The Demand for Reliable Website Hosting Solutions

The moment the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will obtain various online services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you accommodate on the server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up email addresses such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web page, being online and being permitted to create mail accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you manage a business web portal – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. For this reason you demand a reliable host that will provide a dependable and stable website hosting service.
