Cheap Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 things you require in order to launch a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is primarily the storage space on a server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 interconnected, yet different solutions, and you demand them both so as to have an operational website.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 80 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may entail additional prerequisites in relation to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will show the web site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your site. You can have a domain name registered with a particular registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting vendors offer both services and it is more time-saving to administer all services from one web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package 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 change a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each hosting company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.hostingtopdog.com and ns2.hostingtopdog.com, for example. The Control Panel that you use for your domain name gives you the opportunity to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting vendor or another.
The Necessity for Reliable Web Hosting Solutions
Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting supplier and is added to their web servers, you will receive various web services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mailbox accounts like email@example.com and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate web portal, being available online and being enabled to create email address accounts with your domain are the two most pivotal options that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you host a business web site – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or clients. That is the reason why you require a dependable service provider that will provide a fast and stable website hosting service.
