Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are 2 things you need so as to run a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is essentially the disk space on a web hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are two related, yet different services, and you demand both of them in order to have an operational website.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 70 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is composed of 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain span of time between one and ten yrs. They may impose more specifications in regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the website files that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a specific registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many hosting firms offer both services and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from one and the same web hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.thebloghost.net and ns2.thebloghost.net, for example. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name gives you the opportunity to change the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting distributor or another.
The Demand for Reliable Web Hosting Services
Once the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting provider and is added to their servers, you will obtain various services. The most important one is that the website files that you accommodate on the server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mailbox accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a business site, being online and being enabled to use e-mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that come with a web hosting package. If you have a corporate site – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. That is why you require a stable hosting service provider that will offer a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
