Cheap Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two entities you need so as to launch a web page. The first one is a domain name that will open your site when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is basically the hard disk space on a server where the site files will be placed, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are two linked, yet different solutions, and you need both of them so as to have a running web portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular span of time between one and 10 years. They may impose additional specifications regarding the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a hosting account where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will display the content that you host in the account, in other words it will show your web site. You can have a domain registered with a specific company and get the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosting distributors provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer all services from one and the same web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each service provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.speedihosts.com and ns2.speedihosts.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the chance to change the NS records and point the domain name to one web hosting distributor or another.
The Necessity for Dependable web hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain various services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you keep on the server will now be shown when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail address accounts like email@example.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you host a personal or a business online portal, being online and being allowed to create e-mailbox accounts with your domain are the two most significant things that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you have a corporate web page – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. That is the reason why you require a reliable web hosting provider that will supply a dependable and steady website hosting service.
