Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your TLDs

There are 2 features you demand in order to open a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is fundamentally the disk storage space on a hosting server where the web site files will be located, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 related, yet different solutions, and you require both of them to have a running website.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it includes 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may include additional requirements about 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 this way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the web site files that you host in the account, in other words it will exhibit your web site. You can have a domain registered with a specific registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosts offer both services and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one single web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each provider has at least two name servers - ns1.hopacloud.com and ns2.hopacloud.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain offers you the chance to alter the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting supplier or another.

The Necessity for Reliable website hosting Solutions

Once the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting company and is added to their web servers, you will get a number of web services. The most important one is that the web site files that you keep on the web server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create electronic mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you run a personal or a business site, being available online and being enabled to set up mail accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that come with a website hosting account. If you have a corporate web site – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. That's why you require a stable hosting corporation that will offer a reliable and stable hosting service.
