Cheap Hosting Services for Your Domain Names
There are two things you need in order to start a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is basically the hard disk space on a web hosting server where the site files will be placed, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two similar, yet different solutions, and you require them both so as to have a functioning website.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it is composed of two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular interval of time between 1 and 10 years. They may involve other stipulations about the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your website. You can have a domain registered with a certain registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although many web hosting providers offer both services and it is more time-saving to manage all services from one and the same website hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each hosting firm has at least two nameservers - ns1.wd4us1.com and ns2.wd4us1.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the opportunity to modify the NS records and point the domain to one hosting distributor or another.
The Necessity for Dependable website hosting Solutions
Once the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting vendor and is added to their web servers, you will obtain different services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish email address accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate website, being available online and being permitted to use mailboxes with your domain name are the two most important things that you obtain with a website hosting package. If you manage a business online portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or clients. This is the reason why you require a dependable web hosting vendor that will deliver a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
