Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Domains
There are 2 items you require in order to run a web page. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a hosting package, which is essentially the disk space on a web server where the web page files will be situated, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 interconnected, yet different solutions, and you need them both to have an operational online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 50 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it consists of two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain interval of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may contain more preconditions in regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to host it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will open the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and get the hosting service from another, although numerous companies offer both services and it is more convenient to manage everything from one hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each hosting service provider has at least two name servers - ns1.www.duo-servers.com and ns2.www.duo-servers.com, for example. The hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name gives you the possibility to alter the name servers and point the domain name to one web host or another.
The Need of Reliable website hosting Services
As soon as the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting supplier and is added to their web servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most essential one is that the site files that you keep on the server will now be available online when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail boxes such as firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate website, being available online and being able to create email boxes with your domain are the two most fundamental things that you receive with a hosting account. If you have a corporate site – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. That's why you require a stable web hosting corporation that will supply a fast and stable hosting service.
