Reasonably Priced Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 items you need so as to launch a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is essentially the storage space on a server where the web site files will be situated, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are two interconnected, yet different solutions, and you need them both so as to have a working web site.

What is a Domain Name?

We offer more than 100 tlds

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves 2 constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain span of time between one and 10 years. They may have more stipulations about the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your site. You can have a domain registered with one company and get the hosting service from another, although many web hosting corporations offer both solutions and it is more convenient to manage everything from one single CP tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting company has at least 2 name servers - ns1.www.hugohost.net and ns2.www.hugohost.net, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the possibility to change the name servers and point the domain to one hosting distributor or another.

The Need of Dependable web hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will obtain different services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the server will now be accessible when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up email mailbox accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being able to create electronic mailboxes with your domain are the two most cardinal options that you obtain with a web hosting package. In case you manage a business website – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. This is the reason why you demand a trustworthy hosting company that will supply a reliable and stable web hosting solution.
