Cheap Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two things you need so as to establish a website. The first one is a domain name that will open your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is principally the data storage space on a server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 related, yet different services, and you demand both of them so as to have a working web portal.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it is made of 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of TLDs to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between one and ten years. They may contain other stipulations in relation to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting package where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will show the web content that you have in the account, in other words it will open your web page. You can have a domain registered with a particular company and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosts provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer all services from the same website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each hosting provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.d3webhost.com and ns2.d3webhost.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain offers you the possibility to change the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting service provider or another.
The Necessity for Trustworthy Hosting Solutions
Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will obtain several online services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you keep on the server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mail address accounts like firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate site, being available online and being able to set up mailboxes with your domain are the two most important things that you obtain with a website hosting plan. In case you run a business web portal – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. That is why you require a dependable provider that will offer a dependable and steady website hosting solution.
