Cut-Price Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names


There are two entities you need in order to start a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is primarily the hard disk space on a server where the website files will be situated, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are two associated, yet separate services, and you require them both to have a running web portal.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 140 tlds

Prices Starts From: $8.50 /yr

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose 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 includes two constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a certain number of TLDs to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed span of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may involve other specifications concerning the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will display the web site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your web site. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting corporations offer both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each web hosting corporation has at least 2 name servers - ns1.cheaphosted.com and ns2.cheaphosted.com, for instance. The CP that you utilize for your domain name offers you the opportunity to change the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting vendor or another.

The Necessity for Trustworthy web hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting provider and is added to their servers, you will get various services. The most important one is that the web site files that you host on the web hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create mails such as [email protected] and utilize webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a business web page, being online and being able to use mail accounts with your domain are the two most important options that you get with a web hosting plan. In case you manage a business web portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or customers. That's why you require a reliable hosting service provider that will offer a reliable and steady website hosting solution.
