Cheap Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 entities you require so as to have a web site. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is fundamentally the disk space on a server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 interconnected, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them so as to have an operational web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it consists of 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may include additional requirements concerning the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting plan where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will show the website files that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with one company and get the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting providers offer both solutions and it is more convenient to administer all services from a single web hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each hosting corporation has at least two nameservers - ns1.foxwebtools.com and ns2.foxwebtools.com, for example. The Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the chance to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting distributor or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy Hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will receive various services. The most essential one is that the site files that you host on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mailboxes like name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you manage a personal or a business web portal, being online and being allowed to set up email addresses with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that you get with a web hosting package. In case you host a business web site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. This is why you need a stable web host that will deliver a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
