Cheap Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 features you demand so as to have a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your online portal when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is primarily the data storage space on a web hosting server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 connected, yet different solutions, and you need them both so as to have a running site.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 140 tlds

Prices Starts From: $8.50 /yr

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it includes two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite 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 given spell of time between one and ten years. They may have more preconditions in relation to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting package where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the files that you host in the account, in other words it will open your web page. You can have a domain registered with one provider and obtain the hosting service from another, although numerous companies offer both services and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one web hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each service provider has at least two name servers - ns1.st8forward.com and ns2.st8forward.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the opportunity to modify the name server records and point the domain to one hosting distributor or another.

The Necessity for Reliable Web Hosting Services

As soon as the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting company and is added to their servers, you will receive different online services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up emails like name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being permitted to set up mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most essential options that you receive with a website hosting account. In case you host a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or customers. That is why you need a reliable hosting company that will deliver a fast and steady web hosting service.
