Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Domains
There are 2 entities you require in order to own a site. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a hosting package, which is principally the disk space on a web hosting server where the site files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 similar, yet separate services, and you require both of them to have a running online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is made of 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given span of time between 1 and ten years. They may involve other preconditions with respect to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the content that you host in the account, in other words it will open your online portal. You can have a domain registered with one provider and get the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting providers provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from the same web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each web hosting supplier has at least two name servers - ns1.star24host.net and ns2.star24host.net, for instance. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain name offers you the option to modify the nameservers and point the domain to one web hosting company or another.
The Demand for Dependable Website Hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting vendor and is added to their web servers, you will receive various services. The most important one is that the site files that you keep on the server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create mails like firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being permitted to set up electronic mail accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal options that come with a website hosting plan. If you have a business site – it will identify your business before your visitors or customers. For that reason you require a reliable hosting company that will provide a fast and stable web hosting service.
