Cheap Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two items you need in order to run a website. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is primarily the storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be located, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 similar, yet separate services, and you need them both to have a working online portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of TLDs to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain interval of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may contain other prerequisites in regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting account where you have to include it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your website. You can have a domain registered with one registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting vendors offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from a single web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each host has at least two nameservers - ns1.dutchsale.com and ns2.dutchsale.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name offers you the possibility to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting vendor or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy web hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their web servers, you will receive different services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be displayed when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mail address accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a business web portal, being available online and being able to set up mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that come with a web hosting account. If you run a business website – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or clients. This is the reason why you require a reliable web hosting corporation that will offer a reliable and steady hosting service.
