Cut-Rate Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names


There are two things you need so as to have an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is basically the hard disk space on a server where the web site files will be situated, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are two similar, yet different solutions, and you require them both so as to have a working web site.

What is a Domain Name?

We offer more than 80 tlds

Prices Starts From: $11.95 /yr

A domain 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 characters long and it contains two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain stretch of time between 1 and ten years. They may have more preconditions concerning the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will show the files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web site. You can have a domain registered with a certain company and receive the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting suppliers provide both services and it is more time-saving to handle all services from the same website hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each hosting supplier has at least 2 name servers - ns1.tierrahost.com and ns2.tierrahost.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain gives you the option to change the name server records and point the domain name to one hosting provider or another.

The Necessity for Stable web hosting Services

The moment the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting company and is added to their hosting servers, you will get several web services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you host on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up email mailboxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a business website, being accessible online and being allowed to set up e-mails with your domain are the two most significant options that come with a website hosting account. If you own a corporate web site – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or clients. This is why you need a dependable service provider that will deliver a dependable and stable web hosting solution.
