Cheap Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two items you need so as to establish an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk storage space on a server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are two connected, yet separate services, and you need both of them in order to have a working web site.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 140 tlds

Prices Starts From: $8.50 /yr

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it is made of two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between one and 10 years. They may have more requirements with respect to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a hosting account where you have to host it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your web page. You can have a domain registered with a specific registrar and get the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosting companies offer both services and it is more time-saving to manage everything from a single web hosting CP user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each hosting vendor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.brainchildhosting.com and ns2.brainchildhosting.com, for instance. The hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the opportunity to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting service provider or another.

The Need of Trustworthy Hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting company and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive several web services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish email mailboxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate website, being available online and being permitted to create mails with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that you obtain with a hosting account. In case you host a corporate web page – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. This is why you demand a reliable service provider that will provide a fast and stable web hosting solution.
