Budget Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 items you need in order to set up a web page. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is fundamentally the data storage space on a server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two connected, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both in order to have a running online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

We offer more than 140 tlds

Prices Starts From: $5.99 /yr

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it includes 2 parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a certain number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs 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 contain additional stipulations when it comes to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting plan where you have to host it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will display the web content that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your site. You can have a domain registered with a given company and obtain the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting firms offer both solutions and it is more convenient to manage all services from one website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each hosting company has at least two name servers - ns1.hostplenty.com and ns2.hostplenty.com, for instance. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name gives you the possibility to change the name server records and point the domain name to one hosting corporation or another.

The Necessity for Trustworthy Hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting service provider and is added to their servers, you will obtain several online services. The most important one is that the website files that you have on the server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create email addresses such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a business website, being accessible online and being enabled to use mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most significant options that you get with a website hosting account. If you own a business site – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. This is the reason why you require a dependable host that will provide a fast and steady hosting service.
