Cheap Web Hosting Services for Your Domain Names
There are 2 items you need so as to host a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your site when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is basically the hard disk space on a hosting server where the website files will be located, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 similar, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them to have a functioning web portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it consists of 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. 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 pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed span of time between one and ten yrs. They may include more requirements when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting account where you have to host it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your website. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosting vendors provide both solutions and it is more convenient to handle all services from a single Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.123webplan.com and ns2.www.123webplan.com, for instance. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain gives you the chance to change the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting service provider or another.
The Need of Reliable Website Hosting Solutions
Once the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their web servers, you will receive a number of web services. The most essential one is that the website files that you have on the web server will now be accessible when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up mail accounts such as email@example.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you own a personal or a business web portal, being available online and being permitted to set up e-mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most pivotal options that come with a web hosting plan. In case you run a business web site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. Therefore you demand a dependable web hosting vendor that will furnish a fast and steady website hosting solution.
