Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are 2 items you need in order to have a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your online portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is inherently the disk storage space on a web server where the web page files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are two interconnected, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them in order to have a functioning website.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is made of two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of top-level domain names to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may contain additional specifications about the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting package where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a particular company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting service providers offer both solutions and it is more convenient to administer everything from one single Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each provider has at least two name servers - ns1.www.bigbmc.com and ns2.www.bigbmc.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the option to alter the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting distributor or another.
The Necessity for Trustworthy web hosting Solutions
Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will obtain various services. The most important one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail boxes such as email@example.com and avail of webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate site, being online and being enabled to set up electronic mails with your domain name are the two most pivotal things that you get with a website hosting package. If you host a corporate site – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. That is the reason why you require a dependable hosting service provider that will furnish a fast and steady website hosting solution.
