Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two items you demand so as to have a site. The first one is a domain name that will open your site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is inherently the storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be located, plus several more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet different services, and you demand both of them in order to have an operational website.

What is a Domain Name?

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 can be up to sixty four symbols long and it involves two entities – a top-level domain name (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 select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, 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 given stretch of time between one and ten years. They may contain more requirements in relation to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to host it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the content that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your site. You can have a domain registered with a specific provider and receive the hosting service from another, although lots of companies provide both services and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from one website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting 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 commonly named name servers. Each hosting corporation has at least two nameservers - ns1.ng.f7en.biz and ns2.ng.f7en.biz, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain offers you the chance to alter the name servers and point the domain name to one hosting company or another.

The Demand for Stable Hosting Services

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting company and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain different web services. The most vital one is that the site files that you host on the hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mailbox accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you host a personal or a business web portal, being online and being allowed to set up e-mailboxes with your domain name are the two most essential options that you receive with a web hosting account. If you administer a corporate online portal – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or customers. For that reason you need a stable service provider that will deliver a reliable and steady web hosting service.
