Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Domains
There are 2 things you require in order to run an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is inherently the disk space on a web hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 similar, yet different services, and you require them both in order to have a running web page.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 50 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it is composed of two entities – 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, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed span of time between one and ten years. They may include other specifications when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your site. You can have a domain name registered with a specific provider and obtain the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting service providers offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle all services from one single website hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name 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 do that, you need to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting corporation has at least two name servers - ns1.mysmarthost.com and ns2.mysmarthost.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain gives you the possibility to change the NS records and point the domain to one company or another.
The Need of Reliable website hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting service provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain several web services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you host on the web hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail boxes like [email protected] and use webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate web site, being online and being able to set up e-mails with your domain name are the two most important options that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you own a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your website visitors or clients. That's why you need a dependable hosting corporation that will offer a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
