Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two things you require so as to own a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is essentially the hard disk space on a web server where the web site files will be situated, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 related, yet different solutions, and you need both of them so as to have a working site.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination 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 involves two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, 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 is free to register, 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 particular stretch of time between one and ten yrs. They may include other specifications concerning the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to host it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain provider and get the hosting service from another, even though many hosting vendors provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage all services from one and the same web hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each host has at least two name servers - ns1.sunset-host.com and ns2.sunset-host.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain gives you the opportunity to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting firm or another.
The Need of Trustworthy Hosting Services
Once the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting service provider and is added to their web servers, you will get a number of web services. The most important one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the server will now be available online when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up email accounts such as email@example.com and use webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate web site, being available online and being allowed to use e-mail boxes with your domain are the two most significant options that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you host a business online portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. Therefore you demand a stable service provider that will supply a reliable and stable website hosting service.
