Cheap Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two entities you demand in order to launch a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is essentially the disk space on a web server where the web page files will be located, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 connected, yet different solutions, and you require them both so as to have an operational website.
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 address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between one and ten years. They may entail additional stipulations about the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will open the files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your web page. You can have a domain registered with a particular provider and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosts offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer all services from one website hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each hosting provider has at least two name servers - ns1.hosting.pro104.com and ns2.hosting.pro104.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the possibility to change the name server records and point the domain to one web hosting vendor or another.
The Need of Dependable Website Hosting Solutions
The moment the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive several online services. The most vital one is that the site files that you have on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mail accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a business web portal, being online and being enabled to create e-mail boxes with your domain name are the two most essential options that come with a web hosting account. In case you have a corporate online portal – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. Therefore you demand a reliable hosting company that will offer a fast and stable web hosting solution.
