Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two entities you require in order to launch a website. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is essentially the hard disk space on a web server where the site files will be located, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two interconnected, yet separate solutions, and you need them both in order to have a functioning web site.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 70 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it contains 2 parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed stretch of time between 1 and ten years. They may entail additional requirements when it comes to the registrant.
Domain Name Hosting Services
As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting plan where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your website. You can have a domain registered with a certain provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting providers offer both services and it is more convenient to manage all services from one single web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting service provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.instalhost.com and ns2.instalhost.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain offers you the chance to alter the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting company or another.
The Necessity for Dependable Website Hosting Services
The moment the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting firm and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you have on the hosting server will now be accessible when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish email mailbox accounts like email@example.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a business web site, being available online and being allowed to set up mail accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that you receive with a website hosting package. If you own a business web portal – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. For that reason you require a reliable hosting distributor that will furnish a dependable and stable hosting solution.
