Cut-Price Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 things you require in order to own a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a hosting account, which is basically the hard disk space on a web server where the web site files will be situated, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are two interconnected, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both to have a running web portal.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 120 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it contains 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between 1 and ten years. They may have additional requirements about the registrant.
Domain Hosting Services
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to include it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the website files that you host in the account, in other words it will exhibit your website. You can have a domain registered with a particular provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting firms provide both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from one and the same website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each hosting service provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.onionhost.com and ns2.onionhost.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain gives you the possibility to change the name servers and point the domain to one hosting company or another.
The Necessity for Stable website hosting Services
The moment the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting distributor and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you keep on the web server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish email mailboxes like firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a business web portal, being available online and being enabled to use email mailboxes with your domain name are the two most pivotal options that you get with a web hosting package. If you own a corporate online portal – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. This is the reason why you demand a reliable hosting vendor that will offer a dependable and stable web hosting solution.
