Cheap Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two entities you need in order to run a web site. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a web server where the web page files will be located, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are two linked, yet separate services, and you demand them both in order to have a functioning web page.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is composed of 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular span of time between 1 and ten years. They may entail other specifications regarding the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting package where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your website. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting suppliers provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from one and the same website hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name servers. Each hosting corporation has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.bottomdollarwebhosting.com and ns2.bottomdollarwebhosting.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name offers you the opportunity to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting distributor or another.
The Necessity for Reliable Web Hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting company and is added to their web servers, you will obtain various web services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you have on the server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mailboxes such as email@example.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you have a personal or a business website, being accessible online and being able to create email box accounts with your domain are the two most significant things that you get with a web hosting package. In case you administer a business web site – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. That is the reason why you need a dependable web hosting company that will offer a reliable and steady web hosting service.
