Cheap Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 things you need in order to own a website. The first one is a domain name that will show your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is basically the data storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two similar, yet separate services, and you demand them both in order to have a running web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is composed of 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of TLDs to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed stretch of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may impose more prerequisites in relation to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a hosting plan where you have to include it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the site files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your website. You can have a domain name registered with a particular registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting service providers provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage everything from the same web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each hosting vendor has at least two nameservers - ns1.www.asterhost.com and ns2.www.asterhost.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name gives you the chance to modify the name servers and point the domain name to one hosting provider or another.

The Demand for Dependable Web Hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their web servers, you will obtain several web services. The most important one is that the website files that you host on the server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create email mailbox accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a business online portal, being available online and being permitted to set up mail accounts with your domain name are the two most essential things that you receive with a website hosting package. If you manage a business web page – it will identify your business before your visitors or clients. This is the reason why you need a trustworthy provider that will provide a dependable and stable website hosting service.
