Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two entities you demand in order to establish a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a hosting package, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting account are two connected, yet separate services, and you require both of them in order to have an operational web page.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 80 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it involves 2 components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may involve other preconditions in regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a hosting package where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the web site files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your website. You can have a domain registered with a certain provider and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosting providers provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from one and the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each web hosting provider has at least two name servers - ns1.bigdog-hosting.com and ns2.bigdog-hosting.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the option to modify the name server records and point the domain to one hosting company or another.
The Necessity for Stable web hosting Solutions
Once the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will get various online services. The most important one is that the web site files that you host on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create emails such as email@example.com and utilize webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you run a personal or a business web page, being available online and being allowed to use electronic mail accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that come with a website hosting plan. If you manage a business website – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. That's why you need a trustworthy hosting corporation that will supply a fast and stable web hosting solution.
