Cheap Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two entities you demand so as to own a site. The first one is a domain name that will open your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is basically the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are two linked, yet different services, and you require them both to have a running website.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 140 tlds

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it involves 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs 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 involve additional requirements when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the web site files that you host in the account, in other words it will open your website. You can have a domain name registered with a particular registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosting service providers provide both services and it is more time-saving to handle all services from the same website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting service provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.uk-hq.net and ns2.uk-hq.net, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the possibility to modify the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting company or another.

The Demand for Reliable website hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will obtain various services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you host on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish electronic mails such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a business site, being available online and being allowed to use e-mail addresses with your domain name are the two most significant things that you obtain with a web hosting account. In case you administer a business web portal – it will single out your business before your website visitors or clients. This is the reason why you demand a reliable web hosting supplier that will deliver a reliable and stable web hosting service.
