Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two entities you require in order to run an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is inherently the disk storage space on a web server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two associated, yet different solutions, and you demand them both in order to have an operational web portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 80 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it consists of two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of TLDs to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may have additional prerequisites when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will open the content that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosting providers offer both services and it is more convenient to administer everything from one single website hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name servers. Each host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.zonadehosting.com and ns2.zonadehosting.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the option to change the name server records and point the domain name to one hosting firm or another.
The Necessity for Dependable web hosting Solutions
Once the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting provider and is added to their servers, you will obtain several web services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you have on the web hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up email box accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a business site, being available online and being enabled to use email mailboxes with your domain name are the two most significant options that you get with a hosting package. In case you manage a corporate website – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. For this reason you demand a dependable web hosting provider that will provide a dependable and steady website hosting solution.
