Cheap Web Hosting Plans for Your Domains
There are 2 features you need so as to own an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal 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 server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are two interconnected, yet separate services, and you need them both to have a functioning web portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it includes 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of TLDs to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between 1 and 10 years. They may entail additional specifications with regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to host it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the content that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain provider and receive the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosts offer both services and it is more convenient to handle all services from one single web hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting corporation has at least two name servers - ns1.thecheapestwebhost.com and ns2.thecheapestwebhost.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain offers you the opportunity to change the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting distributor or another.
The Necessity for Dependable website hosting Services
As soon as the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting company and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain different services. The most essential one is that the site files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mail box accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate online portal, being accessible online and being allowed to use e-mail address accounts with your domain are the two most essential things that you obtain with a website hosting account. In case you run a corporate website – it will single out your business before your website visitors or clients. Therefore you need a dependable hosting firm that will furnish a dependable and steady web hosting service.
