Cheap Hosting Services for Your Domains
There are two things you require in order to start an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is fundamentally the storage space on a web server where the site files will be placed, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 related, yet different solutions, and you require them both so as to have a running web portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 50 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it includes two constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a finite number of TLDs to select from. The top-level domain names 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 contain additional stipulations in regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will exhibit the website files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your online portal. You can have a domain registered with a specific provider and get the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosts offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from the same website hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each web hosting vendor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.localsmallbusinesshosting.com and ns2.localsmallbusinesshosting.com, for instance. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain name offers you the opportunity to alter the NS records and point the domain to one service provider or another.
The Necessity for Dependable web hosting Solutions
The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting corporation and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you have on the web hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mail accounts such as email@example.com and make use of webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you have a personal or a business online portal, being available online and being able to use email accounts with your domain are the two most fundamental options that you get with a website hosting package. In case you manage a business online portal – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. This is why you require a trustworthy hosting vendor that will deliver a fast and stable website hosting service.
