Inexpensive Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two items you require so as to have a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web page when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is inherently the hard disk space on a hosting server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two interconnected, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them in order to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 40 tlds

Prices Starts From: $13.05 /yr

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 example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it includes two entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may have more prerequisites concerning the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with one registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though a lot of companies offer both services and it is more convenient to manage everything from the same web hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.maconmacguy.com and ns2.maconmacguy.com, for example. The Control Panel that you use for your domain offers you the chance to alter the name server records and point the domain to one web hosting supplier or another.

The Demand for Reliable Web Hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting corporation and is added to their servers, you will receive different online services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish email box accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate site, being online and being allowed to create e-mails with your domain are the two most significant options that you obtain with a web hosting plan. In case you host a corporate site – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. That's why you demand a trustworthy web hosting firm that will deliver a fast and stable web hosting service.
