Low-Cost Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two items you need in order to host a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is essentially the disk space on a server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 similar, yet different services, and you demand them both to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web page:, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves two entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may involve additional requirements when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Name Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to include it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your online portal. You can have a domain registered with a particular registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting distributors offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle everything from one and the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each web host has at least 2 name servers - and, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name gives you the opportunity to change the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting provider or another.

The Necessity for Dependable website hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting firm and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain various services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mail accounts like and use webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate website, being online and being permitted to use electronic mailboxes with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that you receive with a hosting account. In case you manage a corporate site – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or customers. That's why you need a dependable hosting service provider that will offer a dependable and steady web hosting service.
