Cheap Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are 2 things you require in order to establish an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your online portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is primarily the hard disk space on a server where the site files will be located, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 linked, yet different services, and you need them both in order to have a working online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 60 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of two constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the SLD of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to select from. The top-level domain names 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 have other specifications 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 host it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web page. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though numerous service providers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from the same website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each hosting supplier has at least 2 name servers - ns1.cowboywebhosting.net and ns2.cowboywebhosting.net, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the option to change the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting provider or another.
The Demand for Dependable web hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting firm and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive different web services. The most crucial one is that the web site files that you host on the web server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mail address accounts like email@example.com and use webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate website, being available online and being able to set up email accounts with your domain name are the two most pivotal things that you obtain with a web hosting account. In case you manage a business web site – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. For that reason you need a stable service provider that will provide a reliable and stable web hosting solution.
