Cheap Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 features you demand in order to have a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your web site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a hosting plan, which is essentially the disk space on a hosting server where the site files will be placed, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 related, yet separate services, and you need them both in order to have an operational web page.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above 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 name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to select 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 10 yrs. They may entail more stipulations in relation to 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 host it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the files that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your web page. You can have a domain registered with a particular registrar and get the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosting suppliers provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage all services from a single web hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.maconmacguy.com and ns2.maconmacguy.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the opportunity to modify the name servers and point the domain name to one hosting firm or another.

The Demand for Stable website hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting corporation and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive several online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you host on the server will now be available online when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a business website, being online and being allowed to use e-mail accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal options that you receive with a web hosting package. In case you manage a corporate online portal – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. For this reason you need a stable hosting service provider that will offer a reliable and stable website hosting solution.
