Cheap Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two entities you need so as to kick off a website. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is fundamentally the disk space on a web server where the web site files will be placed, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are two linked, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both in order to have a functioning online portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it involves 2 components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain span of time between one and ten years. They may have more specifications with respect to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting suppliers provide both services and it is more convenient to administer everything from one single web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each host has at least 2 name servers - ns1.grabbaghosting.com and ns2.grabbaghosting.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name gives you the opportunity to alter the nameservers and point the domain name to one hosting service provider or another.
The Need of Stable website hosting Services
Once the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting corporation and is added to their servers, you will receive a number of web services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create email addresses such as firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a business web page, being accessible online and being allowed to set up e-mail addresses with your domain name are the two most important options that you obtain with a website hosting package. In case you manage a corporate website – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or customers. Therefore you require a trustworthy provider that will provide a fast and steady web hosting solution.
