Cheap Web Hosting Services for Your Domains
There are two items you demand so as to host a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web site when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is basically the storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be situated, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two linked, yet separate services, and you need both of them in order to have a running site.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it is composed of 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given span of time between 1 and ten years. They may impose other specifications when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting package where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will open the site files that you host in the account, in other words it will open your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a particular company and obtain the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting service providers offer both services and it is more convenient to administer all services from one and the same hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan 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 need to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each hosting company has at least two name servers - ns1.zonkhost.net and ns2.zonkhost.net, for example. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain gives you the option to change the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting firm or another.
The Necessity for Reliable Hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting service provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive several web services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you keep on the server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish electronic mails like email@example.com and avail of webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a business site, being accessible online and being allowed to set up mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most pivotal options that you receive with a hosting account. In case you administer a business online portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or clients. That is why you demand a reliable web hosting supplier that will provide a dependable and steady website hosting service.
