Cheap Web Hosting Solutions for Your Domain Names
There are 2 entities you need in order to establish a website. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your online portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is principally the storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 related, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both so as to have a running online portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it consists of 2 entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between 1 and ten years. They may include more requirements in relation to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will open the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a certain provider and get the hosting service from another, although many hosts offer both services and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from the same website hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting company has at least two nameservers - ns1.hostingdad.com and ns2.hostingdad.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain name offers you the chance to change the NS records and point the domain to one service provider or another.
The Demand for Stable web hosting Services
Once the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain various web services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you have on the server will now be available online when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mail box accounts such as email@example.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate web site, being accessible online and being allowed to use mails with your domain are the two most significant things that you obtain with a website hosting plan. In case you have a business online portal – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. This is the reason why you demand a stable provider that will deliver a fast and steady web hosting solution.
