Cheap Hosting Services for Your Domains
There are 2 entities you demand in order to set up an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two similar, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them to have a working online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 70 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it involves two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the SLD of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between one and 10 years. They may contain other requirements with respect to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will show the files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your web page. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting companies provide both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from one web hosting CP user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting corporation has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.instalhost.com and ns2.instalhost.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain name gives you the opportunity to change the name server records and point the domain name to one web hosting distributor or another.
