Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two items you need in order to run an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the data storage space on a web server where the site files will be located, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 related, yet different solutions, and you require them both to have a running online portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 70 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it includes two constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the SLD of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given span of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may involve other prerequisites in relation to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting plan where you have to add it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your website. You can have a domain registered with a given company and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosts provide both services and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from one single web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each web host has at least two name servers - ns1.fastweb2.biz and ns2.fastweb2.biz, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the possibility to alter the NS records and point the domain to one web host or another.
The Necessity for Reliable web hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting firm and is added to their servers, you will obtain several services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you keep on the web server will now be shown when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up mailbox accounts like email@example.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you own a personal or a business site, being available online and being permitted to set up email mailboxes with your domain are the two most essential options that you receive with a hosting account. In case you run a business online portal – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. That's why you require a reliable web host that will furnish a dependable and steady web hosting service.
