Cheap Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two items you demand in order to set up a web site. The first one is a domain name that will show your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is inherently the hard disk space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two linked, yet different solutions, and you need both of them in order to have a running site.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between one and ten yrs. They may entail additional preconditions when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your site. You can have a domain name registered with one registrar and get the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting suppliers offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle everything from one CP interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting company has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.gtohosting.com and ns2.www.gtohosting.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name gives you the chance to change the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting supplier or another.

The Need of Stable Web Hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting provider and is added to their servers, you will get various web services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you keep on the web server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create email mailbox accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you own a personal or a business web page, being accessible online and being able to use mails with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that you obtain with a website hosting package. In case you have a business online portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. Therefore you demand a dependable hosting service provider that will deliver a fast and steady website hosting service.
