Cheap Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two entities you need in order to establish an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your online portal when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is inherently the disk space on a hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are two associated, yet separate services, and you require them both so as to have a working online portal.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 90 tlds

Prices Starts From: $16.00 /yr

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises two entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a set number of TLDs to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between one and 10 yrs. They may contain other requirements in regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to include it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the website files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your website. You can have a domain registered with a specific registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though many web hosts provide both services and it is more time-saving to manage everything from the same hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each hosting service provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.downy.org and ns2.downy.org, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name gives you the opportunity to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting corporation or another.

The Need of Reliable web hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting service provider and is added to their servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you keep on the server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up emails like [email protected] and make use of webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate web portal, being accessible online and being able to set up mailboxes with your domain are the two most pivotal things that you get with a web hosting account. If you run a corporate website – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or customers. That's why you need a dependable hosting supplier that will provide a reliable and stable web hosting service.
