Cheap Hosting Services for Your Domain Names
There are 2 things you need in order to run a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your online portal when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a web server where the web page files will be situated, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two similar, yet separate services, and you require them both so as to have a working web portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 30 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is made of two components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular spell of time between 1 and ten years. They may include more specifications in relation to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting package where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the web page files that you host in the account, in other words it will open your web portal. You can have a domain registered with one provider and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosting distributors provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one website hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each host has at least 2 name servers - ns1.webmediahosting.net and ns2.webmediahosting.net, for example. The Control Panel that you utilize for your domain gives you the opportunity to alter the NS records and point the domain to one host or another.
The Necessity for Reliable Web Hosting Solutions
Once the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting distributor and is added to their hosting servers, you will get various web services. The most crucial one is that the web site files that you host on the web server will now be displayed when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a business online portal, being online and being allowed to create mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most essential options that you obtain with a website hosting package. If you have a business site – it will identify your business before your visitors or clients. For this reason you require a dependable web hosting distributor that will deliver a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
