Cheap Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two features you need so as to start an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web page when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a server where the website files will be placed, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 similar, yet separate solutions, and you require both of them to have a running web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it involves two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names 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 one and ten yrs. They may include other preconditions in regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to include it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the web content that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your website. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and get the hosting service from another, although many hosting companies provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer all services from a single web hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each web hosting service provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.viawebcloud.com and ns2.viawebcloud.com, for example. The hosting CP that you use for your domain offers you the option to modify the name server records and point the domain name to one web hosting company or another.

The Demand for Stable web hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will receive various web services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up mail addresses such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate web page, being online and being permitted to use mail accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal things that you receive with a website hosting account. If you host a corporate web page – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. That is the reason why you demand a dependable hosting distributor that will provide a reliable and steady website hosting service.
