Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 entities you require so as to host a web site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is inherently the hard disk space on a server where the web site files will be placed, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are two related, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them to have a running web portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it includes two components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a certain 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 certain stretch of time between one and ten yrs. They may entail additional requirements in relation to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a hosting account where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will open the website files that you host in the account, in other words it will exhibit your web portal. You can have a domain registered with one company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting corporations provide both services and it is more convenient to handle everything from one single website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name server records. Each hosting vendor has at least 2 name servers - ns1.pixalogy.net and ns2.pixalogy.net, for example. The Control Panel that you utilize for your domain gives you the possibility to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting company or another.
The Necessity for Stable Web Hosting Solutions
Once the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting corporation and is added to their hosting servers, you will get various web services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you have on the hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up electronic mailboxes like email@example.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you administer a personal or a business website, being accessible online and being allowed to set up mailboxes with your domain are the two most fundamental things that you get with a website hosting package. In case you host a corporate website – it will single out your business before your website visitors or customers. Therefore you demand a reliable web host that will supply a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
